The Statistical Office of the European Communities has published its "Research and Development: Annual Statistics 1994". This publication contains current data on the level, structure and trends of research and development (R&D) activities in the European Union and the European Economic Area. In response to the constantly increasing interest in data on R&D, the content of this publication has been expanded since the last edition. The 1994 edition contains, for the first time, data on R&D personnel and R&D expenditure, for 1985-1991, at national and regional level. In addition, data on R&D government appropriations for Austria, Sweden, Finland and Norway are also included.
