Abstract: 
The report monitors the progress made by EU Member States concerning two key indicators identified in the Integrated Strategic Energy Technology Plan Communication, namely the level investment in R&I (by both the public and private sector) and trends in patents. To do so, a collection of country dashboards are presented containing the relevant information, summarised for each EU Member State and SET Plan action, providing a quick overview of each EU Member State within the European framework. The information presented is produced according to the JRC in-house methodology for monitoring R&I in Low Carbon Energy Technologies and is consistent with the R&I indicators included in the 3rd State of the Energy Union Report.
