This paper, part of a series prepared for the California Report on the Environment for Science and Technology (CREST), describes R&D expenditures in California from 1994 through 1997. It includes results obtained by CCST for the 1995-1996 and 1996-1997 years, and builds on the data collected by the State Science and Technology Institute for 1994-1995.
The first comprehensive assessment of the state’s science and technology indicators, CREST draws on extensive research and analysis and offers recommendations for how industry leaders, academic planners, and state policy makers can respond more effectively to a high-tech economy. CREST addresses the absence of a regularly executed strategic planning process for the California economy by providing essential information upon which strategic and tactical decisions can be based.
