 Bruegel, Rue de la Charité 33, 1210 Brussels

This Blueprint picks up some of the main issues of the MAPCOMPETE project and provides an inventory and an assessment of the data related to the measurement of competitiveness in Europe. This Report, and the associated meta-database available at www.mapcompete.eu – which provides detailed information on data accessibility and computability of more than 150 indicators – can be a key handbook for a researcher interested in measuring competiveness, or for policymakers interested in the feasibility and in the quality of alternative competitiveness measures.
