Slovenia 1985 National Support Measure

The idea of the measure (established in 1985) was to rejuvenate the R&D personnel in PROs and HEIs. It has three characteristics: young researchers participate in research work during their postgraduate studies on basic or applied research projects; they have regular, fixed-term employment contracts; Slovenian Research Agency finances their salaries, social contributions, material and non-material costs for research and postgraduate study (approx. €30,000 annually per researcher).

CIFRE (Convention industrielle de formation par la recherche)
France 1981 National Support Measure

CIFRE was launched in 1981 to increase research activities in French enterprises. It aims to encourage mobility of students and researchers. It allows a student to complete his PhD research in a private enterprise. By this means technological research of enterprises can be reinforced, facilitating access of enterprises to skilled personnel and ensuring that the future skill base will correspond to the innovation needs of enterprises. The budget in 2010 was €47.8m. 1,350 new CIFRE contracts were signed in 2012 (MESR).

Industrielle Gemeinschaftsforschung (IGF)
Germany 1960 National Support Measure

The programme is solely accessible via sectoral research institutions that are members of the Association of Industrial Research Organisations (AiF). These institutions have been founded by SMEs from certain sectors in order to carry out R&D in their joint interest. The objective of the programme is the mitigation of structural disadvantages of SMEs in R&D activities.

Statistical Document

This report proposes a novel way to conceptualise and measure research excellence at the country level using a composite indicator approach. So far, few studies measure scientific and technological research excellence at the country level whilst taking into account the multidimensional nature of research excellence. Following the OECD Oslo Manual, we define research as creative work undertaken on a systematic basis in order to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of man, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications.

Statistical Document

This report presents the methodology followed to compute the 2014 edition of the Innovation Output Indicator (IOI). The IOI was developed by the European Commission at the request of the European Council in order to benchmark national innovation policies and to monitor the EU’s performance against its main trading partners. The IOI was first presented as a Communication and Staff Working Document1 in 2013, followed by an update in 2014 as part of the 2014 Commission Report on Innovation Union progress at country level (country profiles).
