European R&D Creeping Up

Aurora Brief Reviews No. 02 January 22 2019

January 2019

In a recently published factsheet/newsrelease, Eurostat shows that R&D expenditure in the EU has increased marginally to 2.07% in 2017 (up 0,03% from 2016). But the lag behind the United States (2,76% in 2015), Japan (3,28% in 2015) and South Korea (4,22% in 2015).

Within the EU, Sweden, Austria, Denmark and Germany do best with over 3%, while Finland, Belgium and France are also above 2%, as are Norway and Iceland. Below that bar are the Netherlands (marginally) and the UK (considerably).
