Summary/Abstract: As innovation policy becomes an important part of political reality, various perspectives for researching it may be adopted. For example, innovation policy plays a vital role in the Europe 2020 strategy, which is now the most important, influential document shaping the economies of EU member states. This article analyses the Europe 2020 strategy in terms of the role played by the regional level of governance and in terms of the importance of innovation policy for the strategy. Using an institutionalist approach, the article concludes that regions will vary in their performance in innovation policy in tandem with their governance capacities.
