Título: Competitividad Europea regional - Indicadores 2010
Título original: EU Regional Competitiveness Index 2010
Autor: Paola Annoni and Kornelia Kozovska
Resumen: The concept of competitiveness has in the last decades extended from the micro-level of firms to the macro-level of countries. Between the two levels stands the concept of regional competitiveness which is the focus of the “EU Regional Competitiveness Index”, RCI hereafter, a joint project between DG Joint Research Centre and DG Regional Policy. 

The final goal is measuring the competitiveness of European regions at the NUTS2 level by developing a composite index. But, why measuring regional competitiveness is so important? Because “if you can not measure it, you can not improve it” (Lord Kelvin). A quantitative score of competitiveness will facilitate Member States in identifying possible regional weaknesses together with factors mainly driving these weaknesses. This in turn will assist regions in the catching up process. 

The study starts from the review of the latest literature contributions to the concept of ‘regional competitiveness’ and of some well-known existing competitiveness indices at country and regional level (NUTS1 and NUTS2). At the country level, the Global Competitiveness Index by the World Economic Forum, and the World Competitiveness Yearbook by the Institute for Management Development (IMD) are presented. At the regional NUTS1 level, the European Competitiveness Index by the University of Wales Institute is discussed. A simpler but more detailed geographical description of competitiveness is offered by the ‘Altas of Regional Competitiveness’ (Eurochambers),, reflecting the international recognition of the importance of analysis at the regional NUTS2 level. Specific examples of competitiveness measures at the regional level in some European countries are also discussed.
