Science Policy: New Mechanisms for Scientific Collaboration Between East and West

Front Cover
This volume addresses, specifically, priority fields of science in which joint, multidisciplinary research should be developed, encompassing rational use of natural resources and regional sustainable development, as well as the monitoring of the biosphere's ecosystem state and the risks of natural and anthropogenic hazards, and the creation of new materials and technologies. The list of priorities includes Siberia's economic, social and humanitarian problems, as well as the development of information systems for the rapid exchange of scientific data. The contributors suggest that there is a recognized need for the involvement of young scientists in partnership laboratories, in a probationary capacity.
