The statistics describe the funding allocated in the state budget to research and development. Examined are also changes occurring in R&D funding between different years. The OECD and EU recommendations are observed in the compilation of the statistics. The Statistics Act (280/2004) is applied in the production of the statistics on science and technology (incl. research and development). In addition, Commission Regulation (EC) No 753/2004 requires collection of data and steers the compilation of the statistics. The data are collected jointly by a network of experts from different administrative sectors.
