8 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 564 libraries worldwide
Investing in innovation : creating a research and innovation policy that works by Lewis M Branscomb( Book )
16 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 413 libraries worldwide
This book, an expansion of that report, offers a new set of technology policy principles. These principles provide guidelines for stimulating technical innovation, shaping public-private partnerships, and establishing criteria for federal investments in research. The authors use the principles to evaluate many federal research programs and to make recommendations for change
Empowering technology : implementing a U.S. strategy by Lewis M Branscomb( Book )
13 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 339 libraries worldwide
Industrializing knowledge : university-industry linkages in Japan and the United States by Lewis M Branscomb( Book )
11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 292 libraries worldwide
There is intense public interest in the role of universities as a source of science-based innovations. To increase our undertsanding of this role, this book compares the economic effects of university research in the United States and Japan -countries similar in economic and technological capabilities but different in culture, tradition and institutional structure. Incorporating historical, sociological and industrial perspectives, the book discusses both the mechanics of university-industry interactions and how policies encouraging such interactions can address regional and national needs

In the national interest : the federal government in the reform of K-12 math and science education by Technology, and Government Carnegie Commission on Science( Book )
2 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
This report is about the serious shortcomings in U.S. math and science education, and what the federal government can and should do in order to play a much more effective role in the national effort to remedy those shortcomings. The task force responsible for this document believes that math and science education should receive priority attention as a specific focus area in federal pre-college education reform initiatives. However, math and science educational improvement must be undertaken in the context of systemic reform of k-12 education as a whole: teacher capability and diversity, school structure and management, and student motivation. Federal programs in general school reform and in math and science education should be concurrent, coordinated efforts. Sections include the following: (1) "The Social Context for a Federal Reform Movement"; (2) "Inadequacies in Pre-College Math and Science Education: a Chronic and Serious Threat to the Nation's Future"; (3) "Assumptions to Guide Federal Strategy and Organization"; (4) "Federal Activities in k-12 Math and Science Education"; (5) "Priority Roles for the Federal Government in Math and Science Education"; (6) "Strengthening the Key Federal Agencies"; (7) "Deciding Administration Policy and Oversight"; and (8) "Building a National Strategy for Improving Math and Science Education." Descriptions of four alternative assignments of federal management responsibility for k-12 math and science education and the reasons they were not recommended are appended. (Kr)
Changes in the chemical composition of the atmosphere following intense ionization impulses by Lewis M Branscomb( Book )
2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Free atoms of oxygen and nitrogen are introduced into the ambient atmosphere when electrons dissociatively recombine with positive ions. In the lower D-layer of the ionosphere it is found that for fractional ionization levels greater than about 10 to the minus oth power this process dominates the attachment mechanism, thereby leading to the introduction of free atoms as contaminants. The nitrogen atoms oxidize to form nitric oxide on a relatively fast time scale. At a slower rate, the oxygen atoms react to form ozone. Finally, the nitric oxide and ozone react to form nitrogen dioxide. The concentration and the rate of formation of the species is studied as a function of altitude and intensity of the initial impulse of ionization. It is found that for initial ionization levels greater than about .00001, the ultimate ozone and nitrogen dioxide concentrations are determined solely by the reaction rate coefficients and the ambient concentration of molecular oxygen and are independent of the initial electron density.

Confessions of a technophile by Lewis M Branscomb( Book )
4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"Branscomb's principal theme is that the benefits of science do not flow freely out of the laboratory; rather, superior advances come into our lives because people - in industry, universities, and government - anticipate the future and cooperate to achieve desirable ends. "Technology," says Branscomb, "is an expression of the values of the society that creates and uses it.""--BOOK JACKET. "Branscomb takes us on a tour of emerging information technologies - computer software, electronic libraries, video disks, and the information "superhighway" - always exploring the way people are affected. He asks, "How can a democratic society bring the culture and values of science to the wise management of the technologies that shape our lives?""--BOOK JACKET. "This is a searching odyssey by one of the nation's most astute navigators along the paths taken by science and technology since the Second World War. Share his vision of how we can use both science and politics to improve the prospects for humankind."--BOOK JACKET
