It is the eighth report commissioned by BIS to assess the performance of the UK compared with 7 other research-intensive countries (Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the US). Where data is available, it also makes comparisons with the EU27, OECD member countries’ groups, and 3 other fast growing nations (Brazil, Russia and India).
