  • Anonymous


Suggestions for new areas of cooperative study with the Soviet Union are welcomed by the Joint Commissions Working Group of the National Science Foundation (NSF), which is reviewing activities of the working groups under the Agreement on Cooperation in the Fields of Science and Technology (S&T). The main objective of the agreement, recently renewed for a second 5-year term, was to ‘provide broad opportunities for both parties to combine the efforts of their scientists and specialists in working on major problems, whose solution will promote the progress of science and technology for the benefit of both countries and of mankind.’

Cooperation between the United States and the USSR involves the exchange of scientists, the exchange of information and documents, joint development and implementation of projects in both basic and applied sciences, joint research, joint conferences, and other forms of cooperation agreed to by both sides.
