The President's Committee of Advisors on Science
and Technology (PCAST).
The President directed PCAST to conduct a review of national energy R&D
policies, which would access their adequacy and ensure the United States
has a program that addresses its energy and environmental needs for the
next century. PCAST will present its recommendations on publicly
supported R&D, incentives for private energy R&D, and commitments to
international energy R&D, in October, 1997.
