The Positive sum strategy : harnessing technology for economic growth by National Academy of Engineering( Book )

8 editions published between 1985 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technology may be thought of as an extroverted activity involving a search for workable solutions to problems. The output of technology tends to take the form of a tangible product or service. Science, by contrast, is generally introverted, studying problems that are usually generated internally. As technology has become increasingly sophisticated, it has become increasingly dependent on the findings and processes of science. Markets are the basic institutional framework within which new technologies are evaluated. Long-term economic growth relies on the performance of new technologies within this framework. This volume presents chapters by engineers and economists in the hope that the exchange between these groups would lead to a better understanding of the conditions under which technological innovation can be made to function more effectively in the generation of economic growth. The 41 essays included here are organized under the following topics: (1) "Technology and the Dynamics of Economic Growth"; (2) "Policy, Law, Science, and Education: The Framework of Technological Change"; (3) "The Economics of Innovation"; (4) "The Organization of Technological Advance: Entrepreneurship and the Management of Innovation"; (5) "Financing Innovation"; and (6) "Technology and International Economic Competition." The roles of universities, industries, and governmental agencies are considered. (Cw)
The hydrogen economy : opportunities, costs, barriers, and R & D needs by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Academies' National Research Council appointed the Committee on Alternatives and Strategies for Future Hydrogen Production and Use in the fall of 2002 to address the complex subject of the "hydrogen economy." In particular, the committee carried out these tasks: Assessed the current state of technology for producing hydrogen from a variety of energy sources; Made estimates on a consistent basis of current and future projected costs, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and energy efficiencies for hydrogen technologies; Considered scenarios for the potential penetration of hydrogen into the economy and associated impacts on oil imports and CO2 gas emissions; Addressed the problem of how hydrogen might be distributed, stored, and dispensed to end uses -- together with associated infrastructure issues -- with particular emphasis on light-duty vehicles in the transportation sector; Reviewed the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) research, development, and demonstration (RD & D) plan for hydrogen; and Made recommendations to the DOE on RD & D, including directions, priorities, and strategies. - Executive summary

Adviser, teacher, role model, friend : on being a mentor to students in science and engineering by Washington,Dc. Mathematical Sciences Education Board National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide is meant to assist mentors and advisors in understanding how they might help students identify and respond to the challenges of becoming scientists or engineers. The guide--intended for faculty members, teachers, administrators, and others who advise and mentor students of science and engineering--attempts to summarize features that are common to successful mentoring relationships. The goal is to encourage mentoring habits that are in the best interests of both parties in the relationship. The chapters define mentoring, explain the different roles the mentor plays with students (faculty advisor, career advisor, skills consultant, role model), makes recommendations for improving the quality of mentoring, and provides resources. Within each chapter, the text contains steps to improve mentoring, examples of poor and good mentoring, the context of mentoring, a sample of nonacademic careers in science and engineering, and chapter summaries. (Contains 50 references.) (Ask)
Frontiers of engineering : reports on leading-edge engineering from the 2006 symposium by National Academy of Engineering( Book )

49 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume highlights the papers presented at the National Academy of Engineering's 2010 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. Every year, the symposium brings together 100 outstanding young leaders in engineering to share their cutting-edge research and technical work. The 2010 symposium was held September 23 - 25, and hosted by IBM at the IBM Learning Center in Armonk, New York. Speakers were asked to prepare extended summaries of their presentations, which are reprinted here. The intent of this book is to convey the excitement of this unique meeting and to highlight cutting-edge developments in engineering research and technical work."--Publisher's description
