This tenth edition of the OECD Science, Technology and Industry (STI) Scoreboard builds on the OECD’s 50 years of indicator development to present major world trends in knowledge and innovation. It analyses a wide set of indicators of science, technology, globalisation and industrial performance in OECD and major non-OECD countries (notably Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa) and includes some experimental indicators that provide insight into new areas of policy interest.

Business R&D

Business enterprise expenditure on research and development (BERD) is considered important for innovation and economic growth. In OECD countries, business R&D accounts for the bulk of R&D in terms of both funding and performance. Business R&D reached 1.6% of OECD GDP in 2008, up slightly from 1.5% in 1999.
