GLOBALINTO Input-Output Intangibles Database
The GLOBALINTO Input-Output Intangibles Database was constructed in the context of the Horizon2020 project ‘GLOBALINTO: Capturing the value of intangible assets in microdata to promote the EU’s Growth and Competitiveness’. The database is formulated under an input-output framework and treats intangibles as producer services that derive from certain knowledge-producing sectors in the economy (namely J62-J63 – Computer programming, consultancy, and related activities; Information service activities, M72 – Scientific research and development, M73 – Advertising and market research, and N – Administrative and support service activities) and embeds them withing the context of global value chains (GVCs) as traded knowledge intermediates. Data include intangibles related variables for 56 2-digit NACE Rev. 2/ ISIC Rev. 4 sectors from the EU-27 and the UK and are complemented with export variables and R&D related statistics from Eurostat for the period 2000-2014.
