Key indicators

The key indicators cover four innovation dimensions, i.e. Inputs-Investments, Framework Conditions, Innovation Outputs and Impact. They are based on data from well accredited sources, mainly Eurostat. All are accompanied by interactive visualisations.
 
 

Human Resources in Science and Technology

Sub-groups refer to tertiary education and to employment in science and technology. No breakdown in age groups and gender. Created by filtering the original Eurostat dataset.

Time coverage: 2000 to 2018

The indicator is produced using two datasets on education due to the change of the classification system from 2013 onwards.

Total number of scientists and engineers aged 15 to 74 as a share of the active population. Created by filtering the original Eurostat dataset.

Time coverage: 2000 to 2018

Investment– sectors of performance

R&D expenditure of the business sector (BERD) broken down by the source of funding, measured in Euros, national currency and % GDP. Contribution of each funding source also as share of the total. Created by filtering the original Eurostat dataset.
