Abstract

Irwin Feller and Susan Cozzens, both nationally recognized science policy scholars, have criticized the U.S. science policy in their article entitled 'It's About More Than Money'. The authors attack the central immature argument of U.S. science policy, which has its roots in the original designs of Vannevar Bush and his piece Science-The Endless Frontier, published in the wake of the total victory of the Allies and the unconditional surrender of their enemies in World War II. They point to the longlasting challenges that researchers and policymakers face as they try to reduce the uncertainties and complexities surrounding processes of scientific discovery and technological innovations. Most important, they assert that more effective science policy requires increased dialogue between the policy and research communities.
