The Technology of Transition
Science and Technology Policies for Transition Countries

Edited by David A. Dyker, University of Sussex

This book addresses the crucial question of how countries which have suffered losses in productivity levels and innovatory momentum over perhaps 20-30 years can rediscover their dynamism.

Because the contributors have the immediate experi-ence of tackling such complex problems and possess first-hand knowledge of a wide range of develop-mental patterns, each is in a strong position to contribute to the search for comprehensive solutions. This book not only focuses on the problems of innovation and technology transfer as they are reflected in the experience of the transition period to date but also seeks to develop conceptual and strategic approaches to problems which will take a generation or more to resolve.
