Summary

Reported are seven primary recommendations on national science policy made by the Task Force on Science Policy to the President. From a review of the Federal Government's existing science policy (in 1969), problems and opportunities considered as inputs to the legislative and executive science program for 1970 were selected. A criterion for selection was long-term impact on national policies. The particular issues selected include: (1) science, technology, and national goals; (2) expanding applications for science and technology; (3) management of direct federal support for basic and applied research; (4) stimulating technological innovation by private institutions; (5) science policy as related to national security; (6) international initiatives utilizing science and technology; and (7) continuing development of science policy.
