The program on Ethics and Values in Science and Technology (EVIST) at the National Science Foundation has two major goals. The first is to stimulate research on ethical aspects of contemporary issues involving scientific and technological research and development and on social values that influence and are influenced by the work of scientists and engineers. The second is to improve discussion, understanding, and policies and practices affecting and affected by science and technology. The 70 projects summarized in this report have contributed to these goals. Each summary includes: (1) project title; (2) name of principal investigator(s); (3) institution at which the work was based; (4) project reference codes; (5) completion date; (6) amount of funding; (7) summary; and (8) list of pertinent publications. Two indexes are found after the summaries. The first, an index of reference codes, is divided into five sections: health and safety; philosophy and ethics (including bioethics and environmental ethics); public policy; science, technology, and society; and "other." The second is an index of principal investigators. Programs included are for fiscal years 1976 to 1980. (JN)
