Abstrakt
The Knowledge Economy Index (KEI) is and advanced assessment tool used to compare economies on the international level (including also the comparisons with other variables determining e.g. economic growth) and to evaluate if the economic environment is favourable for the effective use of knowledge in the development of economy. In this work, the KEI was used to compare the economic regions of Poland and the United Kingdom. The main pillars of the KEI affecting the level of knowledge exploitation in the regions were also explained. For this purpose, the model of the World Bank Institute - Knowledge Assesment Methodology (KAM 2008) was used. The main characteristics of the KEI include the assignment of particular groups of variables to the particular pillars of the knowledge-based economy model (according to the World Bank), the determination of the scope of notions, the normalisation of the subindices by the assignment of particular values (in the range of 0-10 - the higher the value, the higher the level of knowledge-based economy advancement), the calculation of partial indices, their reweighing and the calculation of the final index.
