Abstract : This report discusses interdepartmental research center functions and their applications for materials science and technology. The Mayo Clinic as an organization of cooperating scientific specialists is used as an analogy. The problems of the Center for Materials Science and Technology are more complex (reflect a wider scope of subjects) and, thus the suggested organization, administration and coordination of such an undertaking, will be somewhat complicated.
