- R&D personnel
- The personnel that conducts the in-house R&D activities, expressed in numbers of employed persons and years of work.
- Employed persons
- Someone working for a company located in the Netherlands, or for an institution or private household in the Netherlands.
In order to be included in the R&D personnel an employed person needs to spend at least 0,1 FTE annually on R&D related activities.
Employed persons are all persons having paid jobs, even for only one or some hours a week, and even if they:
- work legally as such, but without registration for income tax and social security (“undeclared work”);
- are temporarily not at work, but have continued receipt of wages or salary (for instance in case of illness or hold-ups due to frost);
- are on a temporary unpaid-leave.
Employed persons can be divided into employees and the self-employed persons. They can live in the Netherlands, but also abroad.
- Years of work
- A measure for the volume of work, calculated by converting all jobs (full-time and part-time) into full-time jobs, also known as full-time equivalents (FTE).
As such, when combined, the volume of work of two half jobs (0.5 FTE each) totals one year of work.
