Research and development enjoys sustained government funding in developed economies. The authors examine the relationship between European-level support for R & D (so-called Framework Programmes) and the R & D statistics for the NUTS 2 level regions. Regional concentration of participation in the Framework Programmes is higher than that of research expenditures and of the number of researchers. Based on statistics, there are groups of European regions, which greatly differ in terms of the structural composition of R & D and participation in Framework Programmes. There are huge differences between the 16 super-regions, which constitute the majority of European economic and research performance, and the Southern and Eastern peripheral regions. The importance of the Framework Programmes in the areas neighbouring the super-regions and the R & D intensive strong European industrial regions is fairly high in the regional research funding, whereas the less developed Eastern regions are in a worse position in this regard as well. It remains questionable whether the elaboration and implementation of so-called smart specialization strategies (S3), which are expected to match cohesion and R & D & I, can actually assist with the poorly performing regions of Europe's dual objective of catching up and of making them more innovative.
