Nordic R&D Statistics

On these web sites NIFU has collected available Nordic statistics on R&D (research and experimental development). Data sources are the national producers of R&D statistics in the Nordic countries as well as OECD’s Main Science and Technology Indicators and Eurostat.

In all the Nordic countries the production of R&D statistics is based on the OECD Frascati Manual, 2002. Still there will be national adaptations to guidelines that may help to explain differences in the R&D statistics. The Nordic producers of R&D statistics try to make the statistics as comparable as possible and are cooperating on methodological issues.
