JRC has developped a tool  to visualise and compare Research & Innovation investments under different funding channels and EU programmes across EU Regions:

Main economic indicators from EurostatData on key selected indicators from EUROSTAT (e.g. GDP, GERD, Unemployment rate) for each region of the 28 EU Member States.


Planned R&I-related investments under ESIF - Planned R&I-related investments in European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) comprising ERDF, ESF, CF and YEI funding programmes over the period 2014-2020. Regional data include the thematic allocation at the regional level under regional Operational Programmes plus the (estimated) region's share of national, multi-regional and transnational cooperation programmes.

Horizon 2020 funding captured by stakeholders across EU Regions - Horizon 2020 indicators are based on the amount of funding allocated to beneficiaries in the regions. The regionalisation of data may be affected by a headquarter effect (HQE) in some Member States due to the difference between the (physical) location of the actual research performer and the (legal) location of the beneficiaries' headquarter (this problem affects in particular large public research organisations).
