Description Evaluation of disparities through the characteristics of the innovation environment represents an important part of the research into regional economies. One of the respected approaches is the Regional Innovation Index created by the European Commission. It results in the ranking of the regions and their innovation position. In order to correctly interpret this information, it is necessary to look in more detail at the sub-indicators of the evaluation and find out which of them are the most influential. This is the main goal of the paper, which can be achieved by comparing Czech regions with successful Austrian and Dutch regions, whose factors of success are also identified. The basic methods used in this paper are data analysis and synthesis. The traffic light method, which is a graphical variant of the scaling method, is further used for better clarity of results and especially for their easier interpretation. By comparing the Dutch and Austrian regions with the Czech ones, it was observed that the most significant differences lie in the indicators focused on the evaluation of co-publications and their citations, the shares of innovators, the cooperation of SMEs and the share of the population with tertiary education and the level of lifelong learning. Finally, possible improvements in the values of these indicators are commented.
