2023 R&D Trends Forecast
Since 1984, the Innovation Research Interchange (IRI) has surveyed R&D and innovation leaders about their actual activity and R&D budgets for the past year and their expectations and projections for R&D investment levels, activities, budgets, and other important factors for the year ahead. The survey also asks about the geographical dispersion of R&D facilities, innovation leaders’ top concerns and views about macro trends, and the factors contributing to variance between actual and projected spending levels for both the preceding and upcoming year. The result is an analysis that highlights what matters most to innovation professionals. The primary goal of the survey is to map expectations regarding spending levels for the coming year.
