The presentation of R&D expenditure by nace code at the regional level can only be shown at an aggregated level for confidentiality reasons. Because of the limited number of R&D active companies in certain economic sectors, it is not possible to publish data at a more detailed level and safeguard the anonymity of the companies involved.
