This report – published by the OECD and the European Commission - presents original data and statistics on the innovation output of the world's top 2000 corporate R&D investors – supporting the development of evidence-based research and innovation policies.

More than two thirds of business sector R&D is done by a relatively small number of innovators, often large multinational corporations which also account for a significant proportion of patents and trademarks. What global strategies do companies use for knowledge development and exploitation? Which industries account for the most patents? What does the geography of patenting tell us about the specialisation of different economies?
