Manned Undersea Science and Technology Needs Focus and Direction
PSAD-77-130: Published: Jul 14, 1977. Publicly Released: Mar 12, 1979.
National goals and objectives for U.S. manned undersea research have not been clearly defined. Until this is done, it would be difficult to establish a level of funding of new facilities needed to support an expanded federal manned undersea research program.Undersea research has suffered from the lack of overall ocean research goals and objectives, a national focus, and sporadic funding. The Natio...
Reuse of Municipal Wastewater and Development of New Technology: Emphasis and Direction Needed
CED-78-177: Published: Nov 13, 1978. Publicly Released: Nov 13, 1978.
The Clean Water Act of 1977 requires that alternative wastewater treatment methods, including land application, must be evaluated during facilities planning before an agency grant is made for a wastewater treatment plant.Even though new technologies for the treatment and reuse of wastewater are available, they have not been used extensively because: they provide treatment levels higher than needed...
U.S. Statistics on International Technology Transfer: Need for Additional Measures

Productivity, Science and Technology: Keys to U.S. Economic Growth
105610: Mar 21, 1978
The roles of industry and government, especially the Federal Government, as partners in national science and technology endeavors have been changing as a result of the decline in the growth of productivity and lowered U.S. competitiveness in world trade. Other countries are sustaining higher rates of productivity growth because they have found ways to achieve close harmony among the institutions n...
Potential Problems That Should Be Considered in Evaluating the Experimental Technology Incentives Program
PSAD-77-132: Published: Jul 25, 1977. Publicly Released: Jul 25, 1977.
Under the Experimental Technology Incentives Program (ETIP) of the National Bureau of Standards, studies and experiments are conducted to develop policy recommendations on how the Government can affect the rate at which the private sector innovates. Problems encountered in program performance could hinder the program's ability to meet its objectives.In managing projects, the ETIP staff has encount...
