Science in the National Interest

The Vice President reaffirmed the Administration's commitment to science, as well as technology, at a forum on "Science in the National Interest" at the National Academy of Sciences. His remarks challenged the research community to work with government to ensure that federal dollars fund the best research and that results of that research are used to meet national needs. The forum was organized by the Office of Science and Technology Policy to lay the groundwork for an Administration science policy that will serve much the same purpose as the technology policy released in February 1993 by the White House.
