  • Authors: Alexander Tübke
  • EUR Number: 23845 EN
  • Publication date: 6/2009


This document presents the findings of the fourth survey on trends in business R&D investment. While continuing along similar lines as previous editions, it contains further insights into (mainly larger) company expectations about their future R&D investments and the underlying motivations. The results are drawn from 130 responses from the 1000 EU-based companies listed in the 2007 EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard. These 130 companies are responsible for R&D investment worth almost €40 billion, constituting 30% of the total R&D investment by the EU Scoreboard companies.
