THE NEXT SOCIETY launches the first Innovation Scoreboard suitable for Southern Mediterranean countries and adapted to the specificities of the region. The Scoreboard was developped in collaboration with FEMISE, the project partner in charge of economic research work. It aims to mobilize, promote and strengthen the innovation ecosystems and economic development of the countries of the Middle East and North Africa region.

For this region-specific dashboard, FEMISE has selected some of the indicators that appear to be the most relevant. These 78 indicators provide detailed information on the level of innovation performance of the Mediterranean countries with regard to the regional context and include data published by international organizations, survey data which were carried out by different organizations, and data calculated from raw databases. All included data have been referenced with their source and the last date on which they were available.

The EU-funded project THE NEXT SOCIETY is an open community of changemakers, entrepreneurs, investors, corporates, NGOs, public and private innovation, research and economic development hubs from Europe and 7 Mediterranean countries: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.
