This publication presents statistical data and indicators based on a number of data sources available at Eurostat (mainly related to science, technology, innovation, information society and regions). It provides the reader with statistical information to appreciate the evolution and composition of science and technology in Europe and its position with regard to its partners.
Responding to developments in the policy and scientific communities, Eurostat has now been long collecting S&T data. This publication may be viewed as a compendium of data available within Eurostat. However, it is by no means an exhaustive collection, rather it can be seen as a showcase for the various data sets that currently exist. Although most data in this publication originate from Eurostat, other databases relevant in the S&T field have also been exploited. This is the case of the OECD's Main Science and Technology Indicators (MSTI). The particular source of each indicator is specified for each table or graph.
The data focus is on the 25 European Union Member States. However, so as to allow for international comparisons, data for Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, China, Japan and the USA are also considered when available. Furthermore, this pocketbook also provides S&T data for the Candidate countries.
