International Comparative Performance of the UK Research Base – 2013
The UK Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) commissioned Elsevier to assess the performance of the UK's research base compared with seven other research-intensive countries (Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the US), three other fast growing nations (Brazil, Russia and India) and other international benchmarks. It tracks investment in, and performance of, the national research system in an international setting, combining a variety of indicators to present a multifaceted view of the UK’s comparative performance in research as well as the trends that may affect its future position.
The report, 'International Comparative Performance of the UK Research Base – 2013,' is the second consecutive report in this series to be delivered by Elsevier, the first having been published in October 2011.
Whilst the report shows that the UK “punches above its weight” as a world leading research nation, there are concerns about the long-term impact of newer research nations, notably China,on the UK’s relative standing.Uploaded: Thursday, December 5, 2013 - 14:45
