This report provides a comprehensive statement of the Reagan administration's science and technology (S/T) policy and priorities. The report is organized into three chapters. Chapter I discusses S/T and United States society and the United States S/T policy. Highlights of the 1982 accomplishments in implementing the policy and of the fiscal year 1984 administration research and development (R&D) budget are included. Chapter II summarizes trends and developments in surface science, turbulence in fluids, lasers, robotics, genetics of complex organisms, molecular and genetic technology of plants, cell receptors for hormones and neurotransmitters, and neurobiology. Based on these examples, the chapter concludes with a discussion of possible implications for the organization and conduct of R&D and for the integration of results of these activities into society. Chapter III summarizes major S/T accomplishments in 1982 in a broad range of federal R&D programs. Areas considered include national security, space, health, energy, natural resources, environment, transportation, agriculture, and international cooperation. Included in an appendix is an analysis of R&D funding, highlighting R&D policies and trends in the 1984 budget and describing R&D programs of 13 agencies whose R&D obligations individually exceed $150 million.
