They are grouped as: nanotechnologies; knowledge based multifunctional materials; new production processes; information society technologies (IST); life-sciences, genomics and biotechnology for health and sustainable development, global change and ecosystem. South Africa is ranked third in the world in Chemistry: Fisher-Tropsch Process or Purification or Recovery of Products; 12th in Chemistry of Hydrocarbon Compounds and also in Specialized Metallurgical Processes. Furthermore, South Africa appears to have few innovation programmes in comparison with the other countries.

1 Some of its contributions have had a major impact on neighbouring social science disciplines as well as within the field itself. It is therefore timely to look back and analyse more systematically what has been achieved, and in particular to identify the main intellectual contributions to the field.

The elite schools were. The social science literature tends to be highly balkanized, and it is difficult to trace information in a field that you do not know well. Gregory G. Brunk University of Oklahoma. Routinely, various disciplines "dis-cover" the same theoretical problems, such as spatial contagion, without realizing that the issue already has been discussed in a separate literature. A problem crops up in one field, a statistic is developed, but when the problems arise again in another field, the old solution often times is not re-discovered.

We’re on the verge of new technological revolutions that could improve, virtually, every aspect of our lives, create vast new wealth for American workers and families, and open up bold, new frontiers in science, medicine, and communication.

The main purpose of this work is to identify the most valuable literature sources concerned with rural energy in the Third World. The annotated bibliography provides critical reviews of more than 150 sources and lists 50 others. Two introductory chapters identify a number of important themes related to the understanding of the energy needs of rural people and the organization of the process of technical change needed to generate energy conversion technologies suitable for rural application. The bibliography is unique in focusing on the social science (rather than the technical or scientific) aspects of the rural energy problem.
