Thirty-four key ideas on research and research management summarize the views of scientists in charge of research institutes who attended three regional seminars held in 1960 and 1961 in France, Austria, and Denmark. Meaningful research, whether pure, directed, or applied, requires professional management by directors who are technically skilled in their respective scientific disciplines and who are capable administrators of programs that require longrange planning, fiscal expertise, flexibility, and special ability in human relations. Research programs should be flexibly organized to allow free circulation of ideas and the most efficient use of research staff. A bibliography of 26 books, reports, and monographs published between 1955 and 1964 is appended. (JK)
