As an outcome of the Stairway to Excellence project, the R&I Regional Viewer (ESIF/H2020 data) is a tool to visualize and compare Research & Innovation investments under different funding channels and EU programmes across EU Regions (at NUTS level 1, 2 and 3 according to the 2016 version). It comprises two sets of data:
- · The Horizon 2020 funding captured from 2014 to October 2019. Indicators and figures are based on the amount of funding captured by beneficiaries in the regions. The regionalisation of data is not affected by headquarter effect (the place where the grant contract has been signed) as the location taken into account is the one where the research activity is performed (eg. “Research department”). Source of the data is the EC DG for research & innovation.
- · Allocation R&I-related investments in European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) over the period 2014-dec 2019. Regional data include the thematic allocation according to Intervention fields related to R&I as defined by the CPR. In certain cases, proxies have been implemented to distribute ESIF at regional level (particularly at NUTS level 3). Sources of information related to ESIF operation and implemented proxies are detailed in the technical documentation.
