Science and technology

To increase the stock of scientific knowledge on man, society, environment and technology is an important tool to improve the quality of life and competitiveness. These activities are covered by R&D statistics, providing information among others on the number of research and development units, employment in R&D activities, the amount and sources of expenditure as well as the results of research and development. We collect data on the innovation activities of enterprises – relying on the results of R&D in many cases – every two years, in the frame of the innovation survey of the Community, harmonised at EU level.
