The concentration of R&D in the UK

In 2009, 80% of total R&D expenditure by the UK1000 was attributed to its 100 biggest investors. Of these, the 50 UK firms in the G1000 accounted for 60% of R&D by the UK1000. These 50 firms spent over 60% of their R&D investment in the three largest sectors: pharmaceuticals and biotechnology; banks; and oil and gas producers. They spent just under 6% in the aerospace and defence sector.
