Research intensity

Research intensity
2023
3.22 %
Gone up compared to 2022

The research intensity is the proportion of total gross domestic expenditures on research and development (GERD) to the gross domestic product (GDP).

The global estimate on R&D, which is carried out annually in April, estimates the research intensity up until the current calendar year. For odd calendar years, for which results from the R&D surveys are available, this information is used to calculate the research intensity. For the other years, an estimate is made on the basis of available documents and information, particularly the R&D-relevant budget appropriations and final outlays of the federal government ("Bund") and the regional governments ("Länder") and the latest macro-economic forecasts.

The figures are prestented by the various funding sectors.
