The R&D survey shows that Norwegian higher education institutions and university hospitals spent a total of NOK 26.3 billion on research and development (R&D) in 2019. That is NOK 3 billion more than in 2017, or 6 per cent growth in fixed prices. From 2015 to 2017, the corresponding growth was over 19 per cent. Labour costs accounted for most of the growth in absolute amounts, while capital expenditures costs had the strongest percentage growth.
