The contribution of R&D specialist institutions to R&D performance
Findings from the NESTI 2022 pilot data collection
Long-standing policy interest in the role of organisations specialised in research
and experimental development (R&D) raises questions about how these organisations
are classified under different institutional sectors and contribute to R&D statistics
This paper reports on the findings of the pilot data collection conducted in 2022.
The results show a diverse range of R&D specialist ecosystems as well as major reporting
gaps. The ultimate aim of this exercise and its recommendations is to demonstrate
how several OECD countries are able to provide meaningful statistical results using
OECD guidance and promote the mainstreaming of reporting into future national and
OECD R&D statistics.
