This table gives an overview of the number of enterprises in The Netherlands that conducted technological innovation projects, or have conducted these with or without success. These enterprises are called innovators. Innovators with realised innovations are divided into enterprises realising product innovations and enterprises realising process innovations. The table also includes data on innovators which co-operate with other partners in technological innovation projects.
The table only consists of figures on technological innovations, not on non-technological innovations (e.g. organisational innovation and marketing innovation).
The data are the results of the two-yearly community innovation survey. Each survey reports on three years, for example 2010 up to and including 2012 (this is the reference period). The last year in a survey is the same as the first year in the subsequent survey. That means the periods partially overlap.
Data available from: 1994.
Status of the figures:
All figures up to 2012-2014 are final and the figures of 2014-2016 are revised provisional.
Changes as of August 22 2018:
The provisional results of the innovation survey 2014-2016 have been adjusted and are revised provisional.
When will new figures be published?
The final results of the innovation survey 2014-2016 will be published at the end of 2018.
