The EU Commission has published the European Innovation Scoreboard 2022, which ranks and compares the innovative strength of member states. Thus, Austria is one of the strongest innovators, above the EU average. Like France or Germany, the Alpine republic is not in the absolute top group, which includes Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands and Sweden. Austria ranks first in terms of intellectual property.

In terms of GDP, no other country in the EU has recently registered as many patents, trademarks and designs as Austria, the Austrian Patent Office is pleased to announce in a press release. “It is a great achievement that Austria ranks first with its inventors in the ‘intellectual property’ category of the European Innovation Scoreboard,” commented Innovation and Technology Minister Leonor Gevesler (Greens). “It shows the indefatigable inventive spirit of our nation’s people. It shows that our research funding is working.”

In the overall comparison, the “Austria Group” is joined by two EU heavyweights, Germany and France, as well as Cyprus, Ireland and Luxembourg. Behind them is the group of “moderate innovators”: the innovation power of the Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain is below the EU average. “Emerging innovators” Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Latvia, Poland, Romania and Slovakia are below this average.
