ICT2 - Study on the trends in public and private investments in ICT R&D in China, India and Taiwan, and on the globalisation of R&D and the competitiveness of their innovation systems in ICT


Institute for Prospective Technological Studies, DG Joint Research Centre, European Commission

Aim of the project:

The overall objective of the project is to provide a clear view, firmly based on sound quantitative and qualitative data, on the dynamics of ICT R&D in India, China and Taiwan, and on how the interrelation of ICT technological innovation, ICT sector business models, national conditions and international trends (such as globalisation, trade, comparative growth patterns, etc.) result in a global distribution of ICT R&D activity.

The study is composed of two main parts. First, as a data gathering and statistical exercise, the Indian, Chinese and Taiwanese partners collect data and methodology information on the size, distribution and sources of private and public investments and employment in R&D in the ICT sector of the relevant country. Second, separate country reports are prepared to picture the background, to describe the FDI, trade, outsourcing trends and the national/regional innovation systems.

The role of ICEG European Center is the coordination, quality assurance of the materials prepared by the Asian partners. ICEG EC also organises the European project meetings and ensures that the project results can feed into the European policy making.
