Elżbieta Sobczak , Beata Bal-Domańska
AbstractThe concept of smart growth integrates activities in the area of smart specialization, creativity and innovation influencing development opportunities of particular European countries. The objective of the paper is to classify the EU countries with regard to smart growth paths by means of multivariate statistical analysis methods. The concept of smart growth path was defined considering the direction and intensity of changes occurring in the area of smart specialization, creativity and innovation. These paths became the basis for the European Union member states classification carried out using cluster analysis methods. The presented analysis is of dynamic nature and allows for the smart growth patterns typology.
