Although funding from all sources showed a marked increase from 1990, the increase of funding by business enterprises is stronger than funding by the government sector.
Business enterprises finance a little over half of the R&D carried out in the Netherlands. The government's share fell from nearly 50% in 1990 to about one-third from 2011 onwards. The share of funding from abroad increased in the nineties, and varies from 1997 onwards between 10 and 13%.
