Proceedings of Symposium on Education and Federal Laboratory-University Relationships.
Federal Council for Science and Technology, Washington, DC.; American Council on Education, Washington, DC.
The purpose of this symposium was to explore and alleviate the problems in federal laboratory-university relationships, and to point out and encourage greater development of the opportunities inherent in these type of relationships. Participants included 37 federal and university officials. Statements on the "federal viewpoint" and the "university viewpoint," and a summary of the patterns and problems in federal laboratory-university relationships are presented. Following this, 4 general topics are discussed: 1) use of federal facilities for training university graduate students; 2) formal education and training for laboratory professional staff; 3) joint research activities involving university and federal personnel; and 4) interchange of professional personnel between universities and federal laboratories. Appendices contain examples of several cooperative federal lab-university programs. (DS)
