- Science popularization (simply named SP) is the foundation and premise of technological innovation. This paper bases on the panel data from 2010 to 2015 of 31 provinces in China, establishes an indices system of Regional SP ability evaluation index from 5 aspects. On this basis, we use the two-way fixed effect model to examine the impact of popular science service on regional innovation ability in China. The results show that SP service has a positive impact on China's overall regional innovation capability. Meanwhile, there is obvious regional heterogeneity: the impact of SP on the second regions is the most significant, and it is not significant for the first or third regions. The study of this paper provides some empirical evidence for reducing the regional innovation gap by strengthening the construction of SP ability.
