1984 Science and Technology Posture Hearing with the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy. Hearing before the Committee on Science and Technology, U.S. House of Representatives, Ninety-Eighth Congress, Second Session, February 1, 1984. No 134.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Science and Technology.
These hearings consist of testimony by and the prepared statement of George A. Keyworth II (science advisor to President Reagan and director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy) on the Reagan administration's overall science policy in the proposed research and development (R&D) budget for fiscal year 1985. A major focus is on the administration's three goals for science policy: (1) the development of the highest quality technical talent that can be produced; (2) the continuing pursuit of excellence in whatever research is chosen; and (3) the expansion and strengthening of partnerships between government, industry, and universities for the purpose of bringing the benefits of new knowledge and advanced technology to the United States. Among the areas considered are an assessment of the cumulative impact of R&D policy during the Reagan administration's first 3 years (considering federal R&D obligations, basic research obligations, and basic research obligations to universities and colleges) and highlights of the Reagan administration's FY 1985 budget (examining the National Science Foundation's Presidential Young Investigator Awards, a proposed program in universities to integrate both research and teaching needs for engineering, and a program focusing on supercomputers).
