EuropeRDperGDP_750x450

Map shows the percentage of GDP (Gross Domestic Product) that each European region spends for research and development. The map prepared by the European statistics organization Eurostat shows the data on regional basis with the exception of Switzerland and Turkey which are on country basis.

Germany, Finland, Sweden, Norway, France and UK seem to have the highest number of regions which invest most on R&D, whereas eastern European lands and notably Italy lag behind.

Map is based on 2012 data collected by Eurostat.

But if you want the real data behind this map (and also for years other than 2012), it is below:
