The Gross domestic expenditure on R&D relative to the GDP was 1.46% in Catalonia in the year 2016, according to the Statistics on Research anb Development Activities.This figure, 0.06 points lower than the previous year (−3.7% in relative terms), is explained by the decrease registered in all sectors: public administration (−4,6%), higher education (−4.4%) and the companies and PNP (−3.2%).

The Statistics on Research and Development Activities carried out by the INE annually has the objective of measuring the economic and human resources destined for this activity. The Idescat broadens this information for Catalonia by disaggregating variables such as the R&D staff according to researchers, technicians and other support staff, expenditure on R & D as a current expenditure (remuneration and other current expenditures) and as capital expenditure, and the internal expenditure according to the origin of the funds.
