This paper explores the spatial distribution of innovative and productive
activity across 109 regions of the European Union, using an original
statistical databank on regional parents. The main results are the
following. First, technological activity in the EU appears to be highly
concentrated, although concentration tended to decline over the 1980s.
Second, as expected, there is a positive association between the regional
distribution of innovative activity and labour productivity Third, we have
shown that spatial and sectoral specialization of innovative and productive
activities is significantly and positively correlated.

Author Keywords:
innovative activity, European regions, technological specialization,
productive specialization
