The business enterprise sector in R&D statistics includes all profit-oriented enterprises (company R&D sub-sector) as well as the COMET competence centres and the members of the Austrian Cooperative Research/ACR (institutes sub-sector).

R&D expenditures and R&D personnel are the two most important indicators in R&D statistics on enterprises. R&D activities are mainly classified by industries.  The data are the result of a statistical survey which is carried out every two years among all R&D performing enterprises about uneven calendar years.

Methodological base is the Frascati Manual of the OECD.
