Research and development and government incentives

Many countries offer generous grants, credits and incentives in areas such as the digital economy, energy efficiency, environment, globalisation, innovation, sustainability and training. More than 30 countries also offer specific research and development (R and D) tax incentives that apply to development activities related to manufacturing process improvements, production trials and software integration issues in addition to laboratory research. Businesses that understand what is available and the requirements for qualification can obtain significant operational and fiscal benefits.
