ABSTRACT
The article reports on the warning issued by the European Commission regarding the threat posed by the low level of business research and development (R&D) in the European Union (EU) on its knowledge-based economy. The commission's publication, Key Figures 2007, shows that differences in the industrial structure of the EU compared to countries are the main cause for this low level of business R&D. The EU has a smaller high-tech industrial sector.
