The role of science and technology in economic competitiveness : final report by Marianne K Clarke( Book )

5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the fall of 1986, a joint study was undertaken to solicit views of the nation's Governors, senior officers of U.S. companies, and presidents and deans of U.S. colleges and universities on the relationship of U.S. competitiveness to the human resource base and research and development capacity. Researches polled 2,300 senior research and development officers and 500 university leaders and senior state officials. Approximately 500 replies were received This report summarizes the survey findings and the discussion which occurred at the April 1987 regional meetings based on the survey's preliminary results. Specifically, the study was designed to address such issues as: (1) the importance of research and education to the economic competitiveness of the United States; (2) which of the following factors were believed to have the greatest impact on U.S. competitiveness--human resources, research and development investments, technology transfer, or federal fiscal, monetary, regulatory and trade policy; (3) what changes need to be made to strengthen and improve the nation's research and education system; and (4) the perceptions of three different communities--the business sector, the academic community, and state governments--with regard to research and education policies and the roles of each of these organizations to meet the competitive challenge of today's economy. Survey data and the discussions which occurred at regional meetings showed that there was a great deal of similarity in the perceptions of the three groups compared. The industry, university, and government leaders participating in the study agreed that science and engineering research and education have in the past, and will continue in the future, to play a crucial role in determining U.S. competitiveness. With regard to the most important factor affecting the nation's future competitiveness, all three groups viewed education as the key. Furthermore, there was general agreement that the area of education of greatest concern is mathematics and science education at the k-12 level. The survey instrument, a list of regional meeting speakers and panelists, and the National Governors' Association Issues Paper are included in three appendixes. (Tw)
Increasing the supply of women and minority engineers : an agenda for state action by Jean McDonald( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Engineers and scientists in the United States have always been among the nation's greatest assets. Their work has led to world leadership in scientific and technological innovation. Recent trends are disturbing. These is concern over the quality of science and technical education at the elementary, secondary, and college levels. High school students in the United States lag behind those of other industrialized nations according to several sources. At the doctorate level, half of all graduate students in science are foreign nationals. To be economically competitive at home and abroad, the United States must have scientists and engineers who can keep the nation at the forefront of technological development. Reported in this document are: (1) "Trends Affecting the Future Supply of Engineering Students"; (2) "Systemic Barriers to the Participation of Women and Minorities in Engineering"; (3) "What Works at the State and Local Level"; (4) "The Governor's Role"; and (5) a "State Action Agenda." Appendices include descriptions of various state initiatives, and a directory of the Women and Minorities in Engineering Project Advisory Committee. A list of 44 references is included. (Cw)

The role of science and technology in economic competitiveness : executive summary by Marianne K Clarke( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the executive summary for "The Role of Science and Technology in Economic Competitiveness," (1987) based on a national survey on competitiveness. The study focused on three primary topics: the adequacy of human resources and its relationship to human ability to compete; investment in resarch and development; and technology transfer, I.E., the ability to transform research findings into new products and processes. The study participants identified a number of areas for improvement. These include science and mathematics education, university/industry cooperative ventures, and greater commercialization of research findings. The study also revealed, however, that much of the change that must occur is long-term in nature. (Yp)
