Note: There is no data available for BERD and R&D personnel in the Statistics on Research and Development (Eurostat) for the ICT trade industries sub-sectors (NACE 4651, NACE 4652).

  • Overall, due to the importance of their economies or to their particularly large ICT sector or strong ICT BERD intensities, only eight countries play significant roles in the EU according to this particular selection of indicators.
  • Unsurprisingly, the fact that emerges most clearly is the dominance of four major economies (France, Germany, Italy and the UK) with some exceptions (e.g., Finland in ICT BERD).
