Baden-Württemberg leads EU in innovation | EurActiv

For the sixth time in a row, Germany's state of Baden-Wuerttemberg scored first place in the EU-wide innovation comparison. The result was announced by the State Statistical Office of Baden-Wuerttemberg on Thursday (11 December).

No other European region showed a higher investment of economic output in research and development. No region had a higher share of the labour force in research-intensive branches of industry. And the number of patent applications, relative to the population, was also unparalleled in the EU.

They don't say why, but I suspect the PV industry is a significant part of the reason.
