Abstract: The 2009 "EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard" (the Scoreboard) presents information on the top 1000 EU companies and the top 1000 non-EU companies ranked by their investments in research and development (R&D). The Scoreboard data are drawn from the latest available companies' accounts, i.e. the fiscal year 2008 . In the last part of this reporting period, the world economy entered into a strong financial and economic crisis that affected companies throughout the world. Some of the effects of the crisis are already reflected in these company results, namely on indicators such as sales, operating profits and market capitalisation. However, the full effects of the crisis, especially on R&D, tend to lag and are not yet captured in this Scoreboard.
