The 2008 Survey on R&D Investment Business Trends The 2008 Survey on R&D Investment Business Trends

This document presents the findings of the fourth survey on trends in business R&D investment.

While continuing along similar lines as previous editions, it contains further insights into (mainly larger) company expectations about their future R&D investments and the underlying motivations.

The results are drawn from 130 responses from the 1000 EU-based companies listed in the 2007 EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard.

These 130 companies are responsible for R&D investment worth almost €40 billion, constituting 30% of the total R&D investment by the EU Scoreboard companies.
