Study of the 2010 EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard

Date of Publication: March 2011
 
The 2010 EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard includes information provided by 1000 EU and 1000 non-EU companies ranked according to their investment in research and development (R&D).

This study is based in 2009 financial data and reveals that the global recession that started in 2008 affected companies worldwide. This is clearly reflected in the accounts for the 2010 Scoreboard: the report shows that the R&D investment of top EU companies decreased by 2.6% in 2009, even though sales and profits decreased much more, by 10.1% and 21.0% respectively.
