The most important indicators of the Belgian national/regional innovation systems are presented here in radar charts. These charts provide a synthetic overview of the strengths and weaknesses of Belgium and its regions in comparison with the EU average (EU28=100) and with the neighbouring countries.
The first chart is made up of a selection of the most significant indicators overall and the following ones show selections taken from each of the six different groups of indicators.

This allows to compare, on the same chart, indicators with different measurement units. The performances of the three neighbouring countries are also available by clicking on the selected country below the chart.
