Description Cooperation and interactive learning have a significant influence on the development of innovations. Regions with well-developed cooperation between innovation players have better prerequisites for development and competitiveness. Due to cooperation the companies can develop innovations and reach targets that would not be reached without others. The aim of this article is to analyse innovation cooperation between different actors through the evaluation of their engagement in the competence centres that have been supported by the Czech Technology Agency. The analysis is conducted at the level of NUTS3 regions and the regions are compared with respect to participation of regional players in the competence centres and to financial indicators. For validation of a relation between eligible costs or amount of grant and regions’ economic level the Pearson correlation coefficient is used. Our analyses confirmed that the innovation cooperation is well-developed in Prague and the South Moravian, Central Bohemian, Pilsen and Moravian-Silesian Regions.
