    For the first time since 2004, an EU company - the German carmaker Volkswagen - is the world's largest private sector R&D investor. Volkswagen tops the European Commission's 2013 EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard with an investment of €9.5bn in 2012.

However, like last year they lagged behind their US counterparts (+8.2%).
