The present study undertakes a comparative analysis of the development of business incubators and technoparks in the EU member countries. We estimate three intensity indicators for business incubators and technoparks activity and use both a uniform and a weighted rank order of the EU member countries to illustrate regional differences in the intensity of incubation activity within the EU. Exploratory analysis reveals that a region’s endowments base differentiates its ability to benefit from additive effects generated by the presence and operation of business incubators.
