National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
Produced in response to the Science and Technology Policy Organization and Priorities Act of 1976, this two-volume publication was written to provide a look into the future in terms of relating the agenda of science and technology to the visible near-term problems of American society and its external responsibilities for stable peace and the improvement of the human condition. Volume I is composed of the National Science Foundation's synthesis of the contributions to the project. Six issues are discussed at length: (1) stimulating innovation and productivity in industry and agriculture; (2) ensuring adequate supplies of energy and nonrenewable resources; (3) improving the science and technology base for risk assessment; (4) contributing to improvements in health; (5) maintaining international leadership in science and technology; and (6) ensuring the continued vitality of the nation's scientific and technological enterprise.
