Abstract : The theme of this section is the availability and delivery of information for industrial development, a field where information practice would seem to resist the onslaught of information science, and one where the resources of advanced informatics would find less convincing application than the field of research and development. This finds its expression in the distinction made between technological information flowing through systems towards users engaged in R & D, and information on technologies flowing through services to users engaged in industrial planning, investment and operations. The former, in the language of acronyms favoured within the UN system, which it has in common with the progressional community of information scientists, is usually referred to as STI (scientific and technological information). The latter, in UNIDO's usage derived from the operation of its Industrial and Technological Information Bank (INTIB), will be referred to as INTI.
