In-depth and updated information on Norwegian R&D

The extensive presentation of statistics and indicators found in the 2011 Report on Science and Technology Indicators for Norway offers a valuable framework for viewing Norwegian research and innovation, complete with commentary and analysis.

Each year the Research Council of Norway draws up a statistics and analysis report in collaboration with the Nordic Institute for Studies in Innovation, Research and Education (NIFU) and Statistics Norway. The report provides an overview of current research and innovation activities in Norway, and statistics are analysed and commented on across sectors and branches of industry.

 

Strong international perspective
This year’s report features a new chapter that looks at Norwegian research and development (R&D) activities in an international context.

“In order to draw conclusions about the state of Norwegian research, we must examine developments over time and compare the situation in Norway to that in other countries,” says Director General of the Research Council Arvid Hallén.

He is pleased to note that there has been a clear trend towards increased internationalisation of research in recent years.

“This will have a marked influence on Norwegian research policy in the years to come,” he emphasises.

Norway tops the list in researcher numbers
According to the 2011 indicators report, Norway is one of the countries with the highest proportion of researchers in relation to the population, surpassed only by Finland, Iceland and Denmark.

 

While the global average is 1 100 researchers per 1 million inhabitants, Norway has an impressive 5 500 researchers per 1 million inhabitants

 

Abridged English version to be published
The complete indicators report is currently available in a printed version in Norwegian and may be ordered via the report’s webpages. Some of the individual chapters, figures and tables from the Norwegian report are also downloadable. (See links to the left.)

An abridged English version will be published at the end of November, with selected information tailored to an international audience.
