This pocketbook gives an overview of science, technology and innovation (STI) statistics. All the statistical data and indicators are based on sources available at Eurostat. Only the most relevant indicators have been selected so as to give an overall statistical picture of science, technology and innovation in Europe and of how the EU stands in relation to its partners.
Eurostat has been collecting STI data for many years to meet the needs of policymakers and the scientific community.
In 2010 the Commission acknowledged that STI statistics are closely linked to the EU’s policy activities. Innovation indicators are seen as a key element in terms of the Innovation Union initiative and the European Research Area (ERA) in generating progress under the various Europe 2020 strategy priorities. Europe 2020 sets out a vision of Europe’s social
market economy for the 21st century, aiming to turn the EU into a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy that delivers
high levels of employment, productivity and social cohesion.
This publication is by no means exhaustive: it is a showcase for the main available data sets. Any other sources that have been used are acknowledged beneath each table or graph.
