Abstract

Research and development (R&D) is regarded as an important contribution to our well-being; it is a driving factor behind economic growth and job creation, a source of increasing quality of products and a prime mover of improvements in health care and environmental protection. For the development of the European Union, its Member States and regions, R&D is therefore a key issue. This is why political decision-makers at all levels are calling for stronger measures in support of R&D.

Putting such measures into practise requires, among other things, data which are as comprehensive, comparable and as up to date as possible. This publication, by bthe Statistical Office of the European Communities (Eurostat), attempts to meet the European-wide demand for such data, providing regional data as far as possible for four key R&D statistical indicators - government R&D appropriations, R&D expenditure, R&D personnel and European patent applications. .
