Abstract: In this second IRIMA Workshop the aim was to discuss the policy implications of new evidence obtained by the project on the role that R&D and non-R&D intangible assets (e.g. training, design, branding and reputation) have for companies’ innovation and growth in Europe. In particular, it focused on what accounting data at company level can actually reveal on the role of intangibles assets - both at the micro and at the macro level - and on what they miss-reveal or simply are not able to disclose. The informative and policy role of other kinds of (non-accounting) statistical sources - like dedicated surveys on firms’ intangible investments – was also central to the workshop. The workshop, titled "Counting (and accounting) R&D and non-R&D intangibles, drivers of firm's innovation and growth", was organised in two sessions: the first one was dedicated to the discussion of recent evidence on companies' R&D investments and the second one to the analysis of companies' investments on the broader set of intangibles assets which drive firm's innovative activities.
