Abstract : 'It is our objective,' James E. Webb, Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, has declared, 'to insure that developments resulting from NASA's scientific and technological programs be retrieved and made available to the maximum extent for the nation's industrial and consumer benefit in the shortest possible time, thus strengthening the bridge between technical research and marketable end use.' On June 2,1964, in accordance with that objective, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the University of California, Los Angeles, jointly sponsored a one-day Symposium and Workshop entitled 'The Transformation of Knowledge and Its Utilization.' This Symposium was the first undertaking of its kind in that geographical region aimed at exploiting the growing reservoir of technology generated by Government-sponsored aerospace research. In order to effect transfer of new knowledge and technology to the non-aerospace economy, engineers, executives, and marketers from potential user industries were invited to learn about these new developments at first hand from qualified representatives of organizations directly engaged in the national space program. This book comprises a well-diversified selection of papers delivered at the Symposium. (KAR) p. 3
