This is the fourth edition of the European Innovation Scoreboard (EIS). The EIS is the instrument developed by the European Commission, under the Lisbon Strategy, to evaluate and compare the innovation performance of the Member States. The EIS 2004 includes innovation indicators and trend analyses for all 25 EU Member States, as well as for Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, the US and Japan. As in 2003 the EIS is part of a package together with the European competitiveness report and the enterprise scoreboard. The choice of indicators for the EIS has been co-ordinated with the "structural indicators" and with the research policy indicators published in the Key Figures and in "Investing in Research; an action plan for Europe." The annex includes tables with definitions as well as comprehensive data sheets for every country.
