The persistent uncertainty after the global economic crisis together with EU diffuse perspective challenges the possibilities of boosting regional and global economic growth. The confidence in EU as an innovation-driven regional economy has to be renewed: the base points of economic life must be restored, fresh educational approaches are needed and the competences, that are a precondition for success, must be brought back or reconstruct. Thus, research and development (R&D) public and private policies must play a key role in efforts to create wellbeing and sustainable growth at EU member countries. A large number of studies have been conducted in order to evaluate (directly or/and indirectly) the performance of R&D on society but there is still a lack of broadly acceptable and rigorous applicable methodologies for R&D performance assessments. In this sense, on the grounds of some Eurostat and OECD indicators, the expected results of this article are intended to contribute to a better understanding of the R&D performance on overall EU economy and on some EU member countries.
