ICT manufacturing has a much higher R&D intensity than ICT services© nh313066 (stock.xchng) The Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) sector is one of the most research intensive sectors in the EU economy, meaning that it has a high ratio of Research & Development (R&D) expenditure if compared to its value added (its revenues less materials and services purchases).
This is one of the main findings of a new report by the JRC's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS), which also highlights that with a ratio of 5.3% in 2009, the R&D intensity of this sector was more than four times the average of all business sectors in the EU (1.2%). Based on the latest available data from official sources (EUROSTAT and OECD for 2008 and 2009) the report shows that in 2009 the ICT sector accounted for 17% of the EU's total business R&D expenditure, while only representing 4% of the EU's Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

This installment argues in favor of a paradigm shift in primary and secondary education. In early October 2011, I wrote "Three Innovative Ideas, Which Could Help the Economy,... but No One's Talking About Them," In that blog entry I argued that comprehensive education reform was one "innovative idea" that could help transform the domestic economy.
