Sec. 1351. Declaration of purpose

-STATUTE-

Congress finds that wider diffusion and more effective

application of science and technology in business, commerce, and

industry are essential to the growth of the economy, to higher

levels of employment, and to the competitive position of United

States products in world markets. The Congress also finds that the

benefits of federally financed research, as well as other research,

must be placed more effectively in the hands of American business,

commerce, and industrial establishments. The Congress further

finds that the several States through cooperation with

universities, communities, and industries can contribute

significantly to these purposes by providing technical services

designed to encourage a more effective application of science and

technology to both new and established business, commerce, and

industrial establishments. The Congress, therefore, declares that

the purpose of this chapter is to provide a national program of

incentives and support for the several States individually and in

cooperation with each other in their establishing and maintaining

State and interstate technical service programs designed to achieve

these ends.
