R&D Salaries in Belgium – The Benchmark

“Access to talent is obviously a key driver of innovation“, says Tina Carling, Innovation Director at Morgan Sindall Infrastructure & Innovation, in the 2022 edition of our International Innovation Barometer, “But the world is changing and people could well be reassessing their priorities, so companies need to think about how they continue to attract them, and that could well be a question of location.”
