State Government Strategies for Self-Assessment of Science and Technology Programs for Economic Development. A Report of a Workshop.
National Governors' Association, Washington, DC.; National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC. Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable.; National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC.
Since the beginning of the decade, a significant number of states have initiated science and technology programs to encourage economic growth. Although these programs share some structural similarity, many of the specific details are unique. Among the unique aspects of these state programs are their objectives, organizational elements, relationships to universities, industry, and the federal government, the amount of state support and how it is distributed, and the type of research and/or development that is undertaken. In response to these assessment efforts and to specific requests from the states, the Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable, in association with the National Governors' Association and the National Research Council, held a workshop on April 10, 1987. This report brings together the main issues that arose during the workshop with additional information and ideas provided by the states regarding assessment procedures. The purpose is to provide information on the self-assessment process that will help state program officials determine appropriate measures and mechanisms for assessing their specific programs. (CW)
