Thomas Ratchford; Donald Glower; Myron Tribus; and Richard Nicholson (accompanied by Carl Hall). Among the areas considered by these individuals were: overall research priorities of the NSF; supercomputers and proposed centers for cross-disciplinary research in engineering; university instrumentation and scientific equipment needs; science and mathematics education; and engineering education. Highlights for the FY 1985 budget request for specific NSF programs (such as mathematical and physical sciences, engineering, and scientific, technological and international affairs) are included. Also included in an appendix is a statement by the National Institute for Entrepreneurial Technology. (JN)
