THIS WOULD PROVIDE THE SETTING FOR FOREIGN AND AMERICAN TRAINEES AND RESEARCHERS TO USE, EVALUATE, AND REFINE EXPERMENTAL TRAINING TECHNIQUES. IT WOULD ALSO SERVE AS A NATIONAL RESEARCH AND INFORMATION CENTER ON PROBLEMS OF CROSS-CULTURAL TRANSFER. A FEASIBILITY STUDY, FOLLOWED BY FURTHER PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT, IS URGED.
