The Role of Engineers and Scientists in a National Policy for Technology. Report of the National Science Board.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. National Science Board.
This is the Fourth Annual Report of the National Science Board (NSB). In this report, the NSB considers how science and engineering, through technology, can be brought to focus more effectively on societal problems. The Report reflects the conviction that changes in emphasis in the requirements for technology and changes in the pattern of demands for technological talent provide a strong basis for major Federal initiatives. Included in the document are recommendations related to policy in support of technology and policy for technology in support of society. Five major recommendations are discussed in detail in the report. (RH)
