The volume presents the, partially updated, contributions to the first European Workshop on Research & Development strategies in work and technology. The 45 contributions from
9 countries sum up essential aspects and features of national programmes in the field as well as in related
European and international labour organizations (ILO)
activities. The role of the labour market parties as major agents is discussed. Approaches to gap the basic conflict between human and social goals vs. economic reasoning in this field are dealt with. The potential integration of ecological goals in present and future activities as well as holistic approaches in R&D are treated under strategic aspects. Forms and problems of dissemination and transfer of relevant know-how are another point under consideration.
Future aspects of the German and other national and international programmes finalize the volume. A survey on national and European programmes in the field is appended.
