What it's about
Research and Development in New Zealand 2004 presents a statistical picture of research and development (R&D) in New Zealand, using data collected in the Research and Development Survey conducted in August 2004. The survey was jointly sponsored by the Ministry of Research, Science and Technology (MoRST) and Statistics New Zealand.
Research and development is an important factor in promoting economic growth, and developing a more dynamic New Zealand economy capable of competing successfully on the international stage. The Government’s Growth and Innovation Framework has reinforced the need for detailed statistics on R&D activity in New Zealand.
The 2004 R&D Survey collected information on business, government and higher education spending on research and development. Initial results from the survey were released in May 2005. This report contains more detailed information from the survey.
