Education and the Federal Laboratories: An Assessment of Federal Laboratory Educational Activities and Their Present and Potential Relationships with Universities.
Federal Council for Science and Technology, Washington, DC. Committee on Federal Labs.
This study investigates the use of Federal research and development facilities for advanced education and training (1) to determine how well Federal laboratories are doing in continuing educational efforts, (2) to make recommendations for improvements, and (3) to explore the potential of Federal agencies in contributing more broadly to the educational activities of the Nation. The study was conducted through onsite interviews of 75 Federal R&D laboratories. Nine recommendations are made for extending collaborative relationships between government laboratories and universities, including stronger incentives and greater flexibility on the part of Federal laboratories in making their staffs and facilities available for teaching and research by students and faculty.
