This study analyzes the innovativeness of European Union in the context of European Research Area. Literature related with the Systems of Innovation, network studies, Framework Programmes and European Research Area will be used to establish a theoretical framework for a policy analysis. It forms a database from three different resources to establish a European Research and Innovation Network, appearing as a result of policy and programme implementations at the European level. The innovativeness of European Union is discussed for developing policy recommendations, benefiting from the theoretical arguments as well as from analytical studies, derived from network analysis and notion of entropy. It is observed that implementation of a relatively simple rule by European Commission, in addition to policies focusing on development of diversity and absorptive capacity of countries, which are structural holes, may make important contribution to improve the cohesion and competitiveness of European Research Area, as well as the innovativeness of European Union.

Social capital, innovation and growth: Evidence from Europe
Akçomak, İbrahim Semih (2009-07-01)
This paper investigates the interplay between social capital, innovation and per capita income growth in the European Union. We model and identify innovation as an important mechanism that transforms social capital into higher income levels. In an empirical investigation of 102 European regions in the period 1990-2002, we show that higher innovation performance is conducive to per capita income growth and that social capital affects this growth indirectly by fostering innovation. Our estimates suggest that ...
