Over the past decades, the concept of the knowledge economy has become increasingly important worldwide due to being seen as a source of economic growth and competitiveness. This topic is being discussed in the Slovak Republic, as well. This short research paper aims to describe the knowledge economy level in the Slovak Republic. As a result, the 2018 EBRD knowledge economy index of the Slovak Republic was analyzed. We concluded that the Slovak Republic gained a score of 5.40, which placed it at the eighth position. Thanks to its development throughout the years, it was also placed in the stand out economy group. To analyze the results closely, future research should be aimed at the detailed analysis of the knowledge economy drivers of the Slovak Republic.
