Methodology for the statistical survey on innovations, 2012-2014

The purpose of the statistical survey on innovations is obtaining data on innovations and innovative activities in the production of products (goods and services), i.e. data on the number of the business entities that are involved in innovation activities. The survey also provides data on how much funds are invested in innovative activities, the collaboration with other business entities, institutions and suppliers for development of innovations, the effects from the innovation activities and the turnover as a result of the introduced innovations.
In order to ensure international comparability of data, a standard questionnaire for data collection was applied (developed by Eurostat).
The methodological concept as a basis of the statistical survey on innovations is the Oslo Manual (OECD's Oslo methodology) 2005, (third edition), and the methodology is harmonised with the international definitions, classifications and nomenclatures according to Commission Regulation (EU) No 995/2012.
