    It defines common indicators to facilitate valid international comparisons, and collects the relevant data. But today the technological sophistication of civilian industry in many cases surpasses that of the defense industry. This concern is often based on comprehensive appraisals of the education and labour markets. In some situations, existing technologies can be made cleaner and more efficient; in others, entirely new technologies, including energy technologies, will be needed. Make every minute matter.

    Many of the physics graduates have some knowledge of electronics that is enough for them to be able to have a little period of training as apprentices and then stand alone as electronic technician. The achievements of science may call for admiration, but some also prompt also unease, as exemplified in the quotation above from the historian Eric Hobsbawm The description is necessarily tentative and exploratory, and it is intended to present ideas for a discussion of possible explanations. Problematic values and ethos of science The traditional values of science are meant to safeguard objectivity, neutrality, disinterestedness and rationality. See, for example, the influential Eurobarometer studies e.

    For industries that rely on high technology but are technically self-contained such as the semiconductor industry and industries that do not depend heavily on current science such as the automobile industrythe results of current fundamental research are generally not decisive. Many of the teacher training institutions and universities cannot boast of the best academic staff because the best probably do not have godfather who can help them. OECD b. This increasing integration of science and technology also applies in reverse: technological problems now inspire important areas of science, even as science broadens the scope and capabilities of technology.

Inthe Indian Space Research Organisation launched EDUSATa communications satellite Science and technology education for development book access to educational materials that can reach more of the country's population at a greatly reduced cost.

These industries depend as well on the technological development of these ideas in order to grow and to widen their range of products. Achieving this is likely to require significant reforms in teacher training.
