SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY FOR DEVELOPMENT - A PLACE FOR ROAD AND ROAD TRANSPORT RESEARCH

This paper is a background document to Australia's contribution to the United Nations Conference on Science & Technology for Development (Vienna, 1979). It outlines the experience, expertise and resources of ARRB and NAASRA which provide a basis for a contribution to road and road transport research in the developing countries of the tropics and especially those of the South East Asian region. Australia has direct experience, a similar environment, in adapting overseas technology and has good information access. The training, education and conference activities of Australian road engineers and scientists are outlined, together with examples of particularly relevant research projects, complete and current. ARRB involvement in development activities is briefly described and suggestions for expansion of this participation are given in the fields of training and education, information, research organisation and direct research projects. /Author/TRRL/
