Data on research and development (R&D) in Singapore are collected through the National Survey of Research, Innovation and Enterprise (RIE), conducted annually by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). The scope of the survey covers innovation and R&D activities in the public research institutes, private, institutes of higher learning and government sectors.
To facilitate international comparability, data from the survey are collected and presented based on guidelines provided in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's (OECD) “Frascati Manual: Guidelines for Collecting and Reporting Data on Research and Experimental Development" (Sixth Edition).
Data on patents resulting from R&D activities carried out in Singapore that are published in the National Survey of R&D are as reported by survey respondents. Only one patent is awarded to an invention, irrespective of the number of countries to which the patent is being applied or awarded.
