2011 report on R&D in ICT in the EU

This report provides an analysis of the state of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Research and Development activities in the European Union. This is the fourth report of a series which is published annually. This year’s report provides data up to 2008.
The report starts with a presentation of general trends concerning the EU ICT sector in a global perspective and in the EU Member States, followed by an analysis of the impact of the recent financial crisis on the ICT sector. The report then analyses R&D in the ICT sector, using data from the EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard, which tracks R&D spending by the top R&D-investing companies worldwide. The report also provides a unique overview of ICT patenting in the European Union and a comparison of ICT patenting performance, by Member State and with other world regions. Finally, the report presents a set of empirical analyses on internationalisation of R&D in the ICT sector, on which there is still scarce evidence available, particularly with regard to ICT R&D internationalisation with emerging Asian economies.
