ICT sector business expenditure on R&D (ICT BERD) - analysis by member states

Of total BERD in the ICT sector Greece (as for the other variables, Greece and Luxembourg lack official data, therefore we recommend taking the results with caution) and Finland spent between 23 and 19 percentage points more than the next country, Cyprus. In 2010, six out of the twenty-seven countries had a higher ICT BERD share of total BERD than in 2009. The biggest jump took place in Lithuania.

Only five EU countries reported more ICT BERD in manufacturing than in services. Finland led, followed by Sweden and Austria. The remaining two countries in this group were Germany and Slovenia.

In 2010, the largest contributors to EU ICT BERD were Germany and France. These two countries alone contributed for 38.47% of total EU ICT BERD. They were followed, albeit at a certain distance, by the UK and Finland.

ICT BERD intensity (defined as the ratio of ICT BERD to ICT value added) in the EU in 2010 amounted to 5.24%. Finland had by far the highest ICT BERD intensity. Sweden and Denmark also had relatively high ICT BERD intensities, but only around a third that of Finland.
