Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The aim of this report is to provide a brief overall view of research and development in the Community. By providing some statistical data concerning the government financing of R & D in the Member States and their human research potential, it attempts to place each one of them in the overall European framework with regard to their R & D potential. This report also includes tables showing the trends in R & D financing, expressed as a percentage of the gross domestic product (GPD) and total government budget. Finally an attempt has been made to compare the overall Community effort in R & D with that of its main partners and competitors, namely the USA and Japan. The statistical data have been taken from two sources, namely (i) the Eurostat report produced by the Subcommittee for R & D statistics to the Crest (1986) (ii) OECD/STIID data bank (1985).
