While practical works mostly involve experimental studies conducted in laboratory settings and workshops, theoretical works are composed of practices performed by collected data about the market and field. Although applied researches involve unique research pattern realized with the newly acquired information, the situation is realized in a more specific way in basic research techniques. In short, R&D sees basic researches as goal-oriented or studies possessing more narrow application area in practice. On the other hand, when we observe experimental studies, it is seen that R&D is related with manufacturing new products and tools. R&D works for manufacturing are specified as wide-ranging works in terms of establishments and organizations. R&D may mean producer establishment’s or organization’s developing their products, increasing their quality, decreasing costs, increasing market share and enhancing their qualifications as well as suggesting a new idea or opinion.

Establishments and organizations carry out some assessments and practices before making R&D investments. The establishment and organization which are going to make R&D investments evaluate the rate of benefit to be acquired from this R&D investment. For this purpose, some formulas are used. This formula is the effect of total expenditure amount to be made for R&D, total amount of income after this expenditure is made, total expenditures made for R&D and the new product and service to be produced after R&D to grand total income.
R&D contributes for the establishments and organizations to possess more economic potential and to take place among the market actors in direct proportion with this potential. Public establishments support inventions, manufactured goods, designs and projects that will provide benefit for the public and be useful for the public economy in terms of added-value. Establishments and organizations which are active in this issue provide support for the other establishments and organizations in collaboration with private or public universities acting in accordance with the public benefits. Cost burdens of establishments and organizations are decreased by getting public grants in manufactured products and new systems which provide public benefits. Private sector actors are strengthened by supporting them under the names of different projects of public institutions and organizations in order to encourage private sector to be more engaged in activities. These supports which are provided by the government cause more employment opportunities and contribute to national income as well as carrying industry of the country to upper levels by competing with other industrialized world countries. The projects showing up and put into practice after R&D works enable a country possess the opportunities and possibilities to compete with other world countries.
