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.
