The aim of this work is to describe the innovation system in Navarra, that is, its composition, environment, structure, from a dynamic point of view, his evolution over the last years; and synchronous, the results are compared with those of Bask Country, Japan, USA and other reference countries. Most of the used indicators (specifically those related to the global innovation, scientific system and the R&D of firms) rank Navarra in the top positions out of the autonomous-Spanish communities, achieving or even beating, in some indicators, the European average. Nevertheless, even though a positive evolution was found out, Navarra will have to face significant challenges in the near future: improving the firms’ innovation situation and developing properly the technologic centres recently created.
