NOK 15.1 billion was used to carry out research and development work (R&D) in the institute sector in 2019. The investment in 2019 was NOK 350 million higher than in 2018, which equals a real decrease of about 1.5 per cent. The entire decrease is due to lower capital R&D expenditure. Current expenditure on R&D had a real growth of 3 per cent, while R&D full-time equivalents (FTE) increased by just over 2 per cent.
