image of OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard 2011

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.

Tax incentives for business R&D

Governments foster business research and development (R&D) with direct support via grants or procurement and fiscal incentives, such as R&D tax incentives. Today, 26 OECD governments use fiscal incentives to promote business expenditure on R&D, up from 12 in 1995 and 18 in 2004. Among those that do not (Germany, Finland, Sweden), some are discussing their introduction. Brazil, China, India, the Russian Federation, Singapore and South Africa also offer incentives for investment in R&D.
