With its interactive web tool, policy-makers and citizens alike can see how their region scores in terms of innovation, governance, transport, digital infrastructure, health or human capital. By helping regions to identify their strengths and their weaknesses and to target public investments, the index can be a powerful tool in the preparation of the new programmes.

The 2019 results are illustrated with interactive maps and a range of interactive web tools. The scorecards make it easy to compare any region with the EU and regions with a similar level of GDP per head. Users can easily see where their region stands on aspects such as governance, infrastructure, including the digital networks, health, human capital and labour market and innovation. With interactive spider-graphs two regions can be benchmarked with each other and with the European average. Dedicated graphs compare the four points in time and allow the user to select the regions of interest. The graphs show when the changes over time represent a significant improvement or deterioration.
