Science and Technology for Development: The Role of U.S. Universities examines the role of U.S. universities in helping to build an indigenous science and technology (S&T) base in developing countries. U.S. university involvement in engineering, agriculture, and science is analyzed, along with conditions for success or failure and limitations to involvement. Successful experiences in developing countries are highlighted.
This book is comprised of seven chapters and begins with an overview of the past legislative mandate for U.S. university involvement in S&T for development. The reader is then introduced to U.S. university activity in three fields: engineering, agriculture, and science. Within the analysis of each field, specific past involvements, current thinking, and field-specific issues are explored. The subsequent chapters discuss future roles for U.S. universities, including types of involvement, mechanisms for involvement, and forms of cooperation among U. S. institutions. Eight legislative changes are outlined for expanding U.S. university involvement in international S&T cooperation.
This monograph will be of interest to S&T policymakers and university officials.
