Hungary retains position on EU innovation scoreboard
Hungary stands at 67.9% of the European average on the annual European Innovation Scoreboard which assesses relative strengths and weaknesses of research and innovation systems in member states and selected third countries, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Hungary was in the 22nd place on the list, the same as the year before, the Ministry of Innovation and Technology (ITM) said in a statement.
A country profile in the scoreboard report shows "sales impacts", "digitalization" and "linkages" are Hungary's strongest innovative dimensions.
Performance is highest for "government support for business R&D", "medium and high-tech goods exports" and "foreign doctorate students".
"Innovators", "human resources", "intellectual assets" and "employment impacts" are the country's weakest innovation dimensions.
The scoreboard report noted that Hungary's performance over time had decreased relative to that of the EU in 2014, as its relative score had decreased from 70.5% but it was up from 65% in 2019.
