Abstract

The structure of Key Figures 2000 tries to reflect the policy issues currently being debated, notably those in the European Research Area Communication.

In Part 1, an attempt is made to compare the performance of European countries, the USA and Japan in terms of growth, employment and competitiveness, and to understand the contribution made by research, technological development and innovation.

Part 2 presents indicators relating to countries� investment for the knowledge based economy and covers expenditure on education, R&D and innovation, as well as venture capital investment.

Part 3 addresses the important issue of human resources in science and technology and sets out comparative indicators of graduates of the higher education system and numbers of researchers, as well as some indicators of mobility and attractiveness based on statistics currently available.
