Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


This study, commissioned by KoWi, the German R&D liaison office in Brussels, found that the European Commission funds around 24 per cent of all publicly-financed R&D (research and development) projects in the EU. The study examined for the first time the percentage of R&D expenditure used to fund research projects as opposed to research institutions. The research covered 11 EU Member States and found that, generally, project funding is much more common in northern countries than in southern Member States. The study highlighted differences in the way national research councils operate, particularly with regard to compiling statistics.

The report was written for KoWi by Stefanie Schelhowe
