An overview of the Urban Consortium for Technology's role in applying science and technology to solve urban problems, with emphasis on the achievements in 1978 are presented. The organization of the Urban Consortium is described and its 1978 committees and member jurisdictions listed. The sixfold objectives of the Consortium are to: seek new research resources, continue refining agenda building strategies, accelerate development of quality products, communicate the Consortium's purpose and results, arouse Federal recognition of urban science and technology needs, and promote private sector recognition of urban needs. Highlights of the 1978 Consortium work program include procurement of funding for task forces in Energy and Human Resources, examination of neighborhood resource allocation strategies, a study of the use of tax incentives and regulatory controls to promote neighborhood maintenance and revitalization, community energy management plans, fire and safety disaster preparedness projects, studies of urban management, finances and personnel problems, and development of informational materials on urban transportation subjects. Expectations and the outlook for future activities of the Consortium are discussed.
