Abstract This paper investigates the extent of regional cohesion in the European Union by taking into account the notion of knowledge-based economy. To pursue this task, we present results produced by estimating different regional models on an extensive regional data set. The empirical results suggest a development gap across the EU-27 regions. Possible ways to overcome this gap and certain areas of intervention are also suggested.
