Examines the “macro” aspects of science and technology management, namely the development of public policies aimed at promoting and regulating science and technology. Topics include the justifications for the federal government’s efforts to promote or regulate science and technology; the historical evolution of the federal government’s involvement in science policy; the players, organizations, and agencies who make science policy in the federal government; the reasons the government funds the research it does; how science and technology is regulated by the government; and, the roles state and local governments play in the development of local science and technology policies. Explores how science and technology policies are developed in response to challenges posed by the world economy, and how other countries manage their science and technology policies. (Y)
