Johnson, Elmima C.; And Others
This report presents nine case studies of Industry/University Cooperative Research (IUCR) projects supported during 1978-1980 by the National Science Foundation. The intent of this document is to provide readers with a qualitative picture of cooperative science as practiced under the IUCR program. The information presented in this report is designed to be illustrative and hypothesis-generating rather than definitive and hypothesis-testing. The case studies presented include projects that deal with: (1) computer language systems; (2) fluid dynamics; (3) filtration processes; (4) electrochemistry; (5) nuclear science; (6) polymer chemistry; (7) limnology and fisheries biology; (8) non-destructive testing; and (9) chemical engineering.
