Communicating EU Research & Innovation (21.12.2012)

This short guide will assist participants and coordinators of Framework Programme projects to communicate strategically about their research. This will help you to: increase the success rate of your proposal (provided you have a good communication and dissemination plan); draw the attention of national governments, regional authorities and other public and private funding sources to the need for and ultimate benefits of (your) research; attract the interest of potential partners; encourage talented students and scientists to join your partner institutes and enterprises; enhance your reputation and visibility at local, national and international level; help the search for financial backers, licensees or industrial implementers to exploit your results; generate market demand for the products or services developed. You will be given a clear overview of formal, contractual requirements on communication and their intended use. You will be inspired by some good practices emanating from fellow project coordinators. And you will find a helpful checklist for improving your own communication activities right from the start of your project.

R&D Scoreboard: Despite crisis, top EU firms continue to invest in innovation (11.12.2012)

In the face of the continuing economic and financial crisis, major EU-based firms continue to rely on R&D for their competitive edge. They increased R&D investment by 8.9% in 2011, up from 6.1% in 2010. The increase nearly matches US firms (9%), beats the global average (7.6%) and is far ahead of Japanese companies (1.7%). R&D-intensive sectors tended to show above average employment growth. These are key findings of the European Commission's 2012 "EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard" of the top 1500 global R&D investors. The global top 50 includes 15 EU companies, 18 US firms and 12 from Japan. Japanese car manufacturer Toyota tops the ranking, with Volkswagen the top EU company in third place (€7.2 billion invested). Recently released Eurostat data shows that combined EU public and private research spending increased to 2.03% of GDP in 2011, from 2.01% in 2010. This was mainly due to increased private sector spending.
Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science said: "Knowledge is the lifeblood of European competitiveness, so the increase in R&D investment by EU companies is a call to arms in our battle for growth and jobs. We now need to match private sector ambition with increased investment in R&D at national and European levels. EU leaders should send a strong signal by approving an ambitious budget for Horizon 2020, our future programme for research and innovation."
Total investment by companies in the scoreboard shows that the US is still ahead of the EU, explained by the higher number of high-tech firms in the US (€178.4 billion versus €144.6 billion). Companies showing the largest R&D expenditure increases among the top 100 are in the ICT sector, such as Huawei (48.4%), Apple (36.3%) and STMicroeleectronics (34.5%). Other companies in the top 100 with large jumps in their levels of R&D investment are from the automobile and parts sectors, some based in the EU such as BMW (21.6%) and Renault (19.4%).
In the EU, R&D growth figures in 2011 are to a large extent driven by the automobile sector (16.2% growth), which accounts for the biggest share of R&D investment in the EU (25%). Companies based in Germany, which account for around one third of the EU's total private R&D investment, increased R&D by 9.5%. Companies in the UK and France, which also account for a large proportion of private research, had growth of 13.1% and 7.6% respectively.
