The IPTS Working Papers on Corporate R&D and Innovation shed light on economic and policy questions related to industrial research and innovation and their contribution to the European competitiveness.
Mainly addressed to policy analysts and the academic community, these are scientific papers (policy relevant, highlighting possible policy implications) and early-stage scientific publications.
The working papers are meant to communicate to a broad audience the preliminary research findings, to generate discussion and to attract critical comments for further improvements. The working papers are considered works in progress and are subject to revision.
These IPTS Working Papers are issued by the JRC Directorate B-Growth and Innovation Unit- IRI team and, where specified, also in the context of the Industrial Research Monitoring and Analysis (IRMA) activities carried out together with the Directorate General Research - Directorate C of the European Commission.
