OECD publishes Frascati Manual 2015

The OECD has recently published the latest edition of the Frascati Manual, the OECD's internationally recognised methodology for collecting and using R&D statistics for statisticians and science and innovation policy makers worldwide.

The "Frascati Manual: Guidelines for Collecting and Reporting Data on Research and Experimental Development" includes definitions of basic concepts, data collection guidelines, and classifications for compiling R&D statistics. This year's updated edition contains improved guidelines reflecting recent changes in the way R&D takes place and is funded and the wider use of R&D statistics and definitions. It provides new chapters dedicated to the pratical aspects of collecting R&D data in different sectors, as well as new guidance on capturing different aspects of public support for R&D such as tax incentives.
