Statistical Report 2014

The 2014 AEBIOM Statistical Report was first released in November 2014. The 5th Edition of the AEBIOM Statistical Report was a crucial milestone towards the improvement of the report both in terms of content and communication. For the first time the report is offered in two different formats: a free short one, setting out the key statistical outcomes for a broad audience and a 160-page paid version dedicated to professionals. Meanwhile, communication around the report has been extended: new video and professionally designed graphic material has been developed for this purpose.
