The NEP and National Goals [USGS]


The NEP responds to the guidelines issued by the Administration's Office of Management and Budget and Office of Science and Technology Policy, which call for closer linkages between scientific research and broad national goals. Basic research dealing with the scientific, engineering, and socioeconomic aspects of earthquakes is a fundamental part of the national strategy. Basic research provides a close link to the training of the next generation of scientists, engineers, and practitioners responsible for the national program in the future. The NEP also responds to the Administration's science and technology management principle that industry play a partnership role in establishing priorities for federal programs.
