Abstract: The current paper aims at briefly discussing the ability of European governments to be more efficient and to respond to current societal challenges in order to support their citizens by: opening up to innovation, adapting to novelty, and helping to create optimal conditions for a more efficient management of resources and provision of quality public services.. Starting from these considerations, the analysis focuses on evaluating the government's ability to perform (providing appropriate policies, in accordance with the identified needs - government assertiveness), in order to highlight certain strategies, approaches and measures that can foster and support regional efficiency and innovation. In conducting the analysis, there were taken into con sideration relevant indexes (such as World Bank governance indicators, EUPACK, Digital Economy and Society Index, Innovation Output Indicator); overall, the data analysis suggests that compared to the western European countries that have showed a better effectiveness of their development policies, the Central and Eastern European states displayed lower results in government effectiveness and openness to innovation which outline certain deficiencies in their strategic visions and governments’ responsiveness.
