Evaluation R&D needs of BR services enterprises

In 2005 the European Commission launched a study on the quantitative and qualitative analysis of the research and development activities of service providers in Europe. It also aimed to assess the work undertaken by them in national and EU research and innovation programmes, and to identify promising areas for future research activities.

The RENESER study presented here deals with the REsearch and development NEeds for business-related SERvices. It focused on two key issues:

  • the apparent underinvestment of individual European Business-Related (BR) service firms in R&D and
  • the degree to what public R&D expenditure is satisfactorily addressing the real R&D needs of service firms.
