|Abstract:||This report presents a detailed analysis of the 2006 edition of the "EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard" (Scoreboard). This year's Scoreboard contains data on the top 1000 EU companies and top 1000 non-EU companies making the largest investments in Research and Development (R&D). Between them, these 2000 companies invested EUR 371 billion in 2005. This report offers some reflections on developments in corporate R&D over the last year and tries to set those developments in the wider context of changes taking place in the first half of the decade. The company data are analysed from different perspectives, showing R&D characteristic parameters, emerging trends and relations with other business factors at individual, sector and world region levels. Furthermore, the role of R&D for business performance is examined.|
