Member States to double annual public spending on ICT research and development

Indicator Status Evidence
Have your ICT R&D expenditure risen by 10% or more per annum in public spending in last 3 available years? No Norwegian research barometer: Norwegian research barometer, http://www.regjeringen.no/nb/dep/kd/kampanjer/forskningsbarometeret/omrader/teknologiomrader.html?id=635810
Is ICT R&D a dedicated area in your Research and Development programme (either as a separate programme or a part of general R&D programme)? Yes The Norwegian research council has a separate program for ICT, VERDIKT: http://www.forskningsradet.no/en/Funding/VERDIKT/1215006645734/p1184150364108?visAktive=true. ICT is covered in the general government white paper on research, but a separate reserach strategy for ICT is currently being developed.
Has the total ICT R&D spending (private and public) risen by 10% per annum in the last 3 available years? No Norwegian research barometer, http://www.regjeringen.no/nb/dep/kd/kampanjer/forskningsbarometeret/omrader/teknologiomrader.html?id=635810 In addition to the numbers here, we have more recent figures wich indicate a growth in private sector R&D fraom 2009 til 2010 of about 6 per cent.
Have the number of ICT researchers grown by at least 10% per annum in the last available 3 years? No We do not have statistics regarding the numbers engaged in research, but we see a slight decline in Phd-candidates over the pas years. This should indicate a similar development for researchers.
Are there targeted allocations of Structural Funds on ICT R&D? No
