For purposes of measurement, there are three fundamental dimensions of R&D. The first relates to the source of funding of R&D (who finances the investment), the second to the performance of R&D (who conducts the research and development), and the third to the character of use of R&D (whether the undertaking is of a basic or applied nature, or development). These three fundamental dimensions are not mutually exclusive.
