THE COST OF BASIC SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH IN EUROPE: DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE EXPERIENCE, 1956-1966,
RAND CORP SANTA MONICA CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
An analysis is presented of the cost of basic scientific research obtained in Europe and Israel from 1956 through 1966 by agencies of the Department of Defense. Cost-sharing agreements with European institutions and grants have prevented the average cost of research agreements from rising between 1961-1962 and 1965-1966. In the case of non-cost-sharing agreements, however, the cost has increased throughout the entire period. An analysis of the average cost per scientist per man-month for all types of research reveals that the cost of basic research obtained in the United States ranged from three to four times the cost in Europe.
