by E. Munoz Ruiz, Marisa L. Pacios, A. Garcia-Arroyo
International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 1, No. 3/4, 1986

Abstract: The setting of national R&D priorities is a complicated task, but one that is increasingly being done in many countries with a tradition of strong support for R&D. In the case of Spain, the weaknesses of its science and technology system make it very suitable for the adoption of national priorities as pacemakers to strengthen the system. The experience of Spain in the setting of such priorities is described, the characteristics of the Spanish science and technology are analysed, and the measures taken to improve the system are described.
