Este trabajo se propone analizar la evolución de la base regional de conocimiento con el fin de estimar el progreso de las regiones asistidas financieramente por los fondos estructurales. Con ese propósito, se ha utilizado un nuevo índice. Los resultados obtenidos tienen importantes implicaciones no solo desde el punto de vista académico, sino fundamentalmente desde la perspectiva de la política económica en relación a las medidas para estimular la innovación en la Unión Europea. Abstract: This paper is aimed at analyzing the evolution of the regional knowledge base to estimate the progress made by those regions financially assisted by the European structural funds. To that aim, we rely on a new index. We contend that our results may yield relevant implications not only for academics, but especially for policy-makers deciding about the regional innovation policy in the European Union.
