Norwegian R&D data in English

An abridged English version of the 2011 Report on Science and Technology Indicators for Norway has been published, to provide an international audience with the most up-to-date data on Norwegian research and innovation.

Each year the Research Council of Norway draws up a statistics and analysis report (in Norwegian) in collaboration with the Nordic Institute for Studies in Innovation, Research and Education (NIFU) and Statistics Norway. The Indicator Report provides offers a valuable framework for viewing Norwegian research and innovation, complete with commentary and analysis.


The report provides an overview of current research and innovation activities in Norway. Statistics are analysed and commented on across sectors and branches of industry.
