Description

  •  29/10/2018

Share of enterprises with the following types of innovation:

  • “Technological innovation only”: enterprises that have product, process, abandoned and/or ongoing product or process innovations activities, but no organizational or marketing innovations during the reference period.
  • “Non-technological innovation only”: enterprises that have organizational and/or marketing innovations but no product, process, abandoned or ongoing product / process innovations activities during the reference period.
  • “Both technological and non-technological innovations”: enterprises that have product, process, abandoned and/or ongoing product or process innovations activities, AND also organizational and/or marketing innovations during the reference period.
  • “Non-innovators”: enterprises that had no innovation activities during the reference period: no product, process, ongoing or abandoned, no organizational or marketing innovations.

The period under consideration corresponds to the 3-year period ending with the indicated year.

The following size classes are considered:

  • Small firms: 10 to 49 employees,
  • Medium-sized firms: 50 to 249 employees,
  • Large firms: 250 employees or more.

Results are extrapolated to the total targeted population of enterprises. Enterprises considered have 10 or more employees and are in manufacturing, mining and quarrying and other industry; wholesale trade; transportation and storage; information and communication; financial and insurance activities; select professional, scientific, and technical activities.

Note: The core set of services sectors to be covered in CIS was slightly expanded from CIS 2012 on, per Eurostat’s guidelines. The number of enterprises in the divisions added is not very numerous, however; adding them adds roughly 3% to the total targeted population of enterprises. Hence, results between the various years should still be roughly comparable, despite the slight expansion of NACE sectors covered.
