This report presents and analyses the internationalization of business R+D investments in Europe in light of earlier work. Using established metrics, a composite approach is employed to better understand the distribution and development of this important phenomena over time. Core and secondary data-sources are used to analyse the developments in the context of 35 countries and of 7 sectors. Moreover, the report applies a set of innovative methods to analyse factors that motivate cross-country R+D investments and their effects on host countries. In light of European policy priorities, the report aims to improve the evidence base for RD+I policy making. It discusses policy conclusions, including ways to improve the quality of international R+D expenditure data.
