Abstract: This study seeks to identify the variables that best explain the performances of innovative regions of Europe deploying regional strategies for smart specialisation. We follow a quantitative methodology and applied linear regression as a method. To conduct this study, we collected data from the Regional Innovation Scoreboard 2016. The results led to an explanatory invocation performance model for moderate innovator regions, and while also identifying some potential measures and suggestions in order to help decision-makers improve on the innovation performance of these regions.
