Abstract: This report illustrates some recent trend patterns in the NMS concerning R&D intensity, taking the 3% Barcelona target and the EU average as a benchmark. Thus, it relates the absolute R&D intensities in 2005 to the corresponding annual changes per country and sector. The picture provided is heterogeneous. In general, there are large disparities among the EU-15 and the NMS, and the latter throughout can be found below the mean EU-27 R&D intensity. According to the examination of R&D dynamics at country, sector, and partly company levels there is, at least currently, no common trend pattern uniformly evident in al NMS rather than a wide heterogeneity; and this picture seems to become even more diversified as more disaggregated the analysis is performed. However, for anticipating future developments and also for policy making perhaps even more relevant as searching for convergence in terms of R&D are the determinants and main drivers of the corresponding trajectories. ...
