Denmark Ranks Among the Leading Innovative EU Member States

Denmark has maintained its point score in the European Commission’s annual innovation ranking, the Innovation Union Scoreboard. However, in 2013 Germany increased its number of points and is therefore now ahead of Denmark. Sweden still occupies the lead.

The Minister for Higher Education, Morten Østergaard, emphasizes that the ranking demonstrates the strength of the Danish innovation system, but also the need for improvement.

“I am very pleased with Denmark’s ranking on the European Commission’s annual Innovation Union Scoreboard. Despite the economic crises, Denmark has still achieved some of the highest numbers of points. However, we need to acknowledge that it is not enough to maintain our ranking. It is important we continue our ambitious innovation strategy,” said Morten Østergaard.

The annual Innovation Union Scoreboard provides a comparative assessment of the research and innovation performance of the EU27 Member States and the relative strengths and weaknesses of their research and innovation systems.
