Policy Studies in Research, Development and Innovation. Part Two.
Radnor, Michael; Hofler, Durward
Part 2 of a two-part series, this volume presents five separate policy studies done using a contextual research, development, and innovation (RD & I) analysis framework developed by the authors. The studies are intended to demonstrate the requirements and possibilities for policy analysis in the RD & I arena and the utility of the framework for facilitating such endeavors and for providing structures to the knowledge and literature in this field. The first policy analysis was done for the National Institute of Education and deals with regionalism in education RD & I. The second analysis is an introduction to using a contextual approach to program planning. Research and development (R & D) coordination in the social science context is dealt with in the third analysis. The fourth deals with analysis, selection, and planning of programs by the Division of Industrial Energy Conservation of the Energy R & D Administration. The fifth analysis is a contextual approach to development and the role of technology in developing nations. (Author/JM)
