Abstract

The UK has the third largest population among the EU Member States, with almost 12.4% (62m) of the EU27 total population of 501m 2010 (Eurostat, 2010a). Economically, it is among the leading EU Member States and in 2008 was responsible for 14.5% of the total GDP of the EU27 with a GDP of €1,910b (Eurostat, 2010a). A substantial part of the UK’s GDP is invested in R&D and innovation. The actual amount spent on R&D (GERD) in 2008 was €34,144m, contributing 14.4% of the aggregate EU27 R&D expenditure – a share that has decreased over that of 2006.
