|Abstract:||This report offers an analysis of the European Commission¿s 2007 Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard (the Scoreboard). It contains information on the 1000 EU companies and 1000 non-EU companies which made the biggest investments in Research and Development (R&D) in the period. Together, these 2000 companies invested ¿372 billion in R&D in the year of reporting (i.e. 2006/7). This corresponds to approximately 80% of global business expenditure on R&D . The analysis describes the main trends in recent years and investigates the differences between EU companies and their competitors in terms of R&D intensity and R&D growth. It also includes results of further research on three related topics: i) To what extent is the EU-US gap in R&D intensity due to differences in the sectoral composition of sales?; ii) Does low corporate R&D go together with low fixed capital investment?, and iii) What is the role of R&D in company performance?|
