More Information About This Project

This paper, part of a series prepared for the California Report on the Environment for Science and Technology (CREST), investigates quantitative indicators of California’s science base both in comparison to the nation as a whole and to other high-tech states.

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.
