The aim of this explorative study is to provide a systematic mapping of the most innovative firms in Europe, in order to identify their distinctive local innovation dynamics in terms of geographical, sectoral and cultural distribution. The research seeks to assess whether innovation performance in Europe is “culture-specific”. From the findings, it emerges that the most innovative clusters are the Nordic Cluster, the Anglo Cluster and the Germanic Cluster. This supports the idea that innovation performance is indeed “culture-specific”.
