Abstract

Innovation development holds a central position among the five key principles of innovation, coordination, green, openness, and sharing. The integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region has ascended to a national strategic level. The development in the Yangtze River Delta region focuses on "high quality" and "integration" as two key aspects, paving the way for a new economic development frontier. This study evaluates the comprehensive level of high-quality innovation in 41 cities in the Yangtze River Delta region based on panel data from 2010 to 2020. Using MATLAB software and the Entropy Weight method, the results indicate significant spatial disparities in the development of the Yangtze River Delta region, particularly showing a weakening trend from the center to the periphery. Under the support of Yangtze River Delta integration policies, the four research dimensions of technological innovation, economic innovation, social innovation, and ecological innovation tend to develop synergistically over time. Recommendations are made in terms of leveraging the strengths of the Yangtze River Delta, promoting talent mobility, fostering ecological innovation, and encouraging open innovation.
