Abstract

The present paper explores the relationship between education and innovation. Specifically, the paper explores the relationship between educational benchmarks indicators and innovation composite indexes. The relationships found are relatively weak and differ considerably depending on which countries are taken into account for the analysis. Old Member States (15 Members, before 2004) tend to have stronger correlations between innovation and educational indicators. Lifelong learning seems to be the factor most commonly associated with innovative countries.
