This report was prepared by a working group of experts, as part of a project initiated by the National Research Council's Committee on Japan to examine technology linkages between Japan and the United States. Co-chaired by Hubert Schoemaker of Centocor and G. Steven Burrill of Ernst & Young, the working group was formed in the fall of 1990 and met a number of times in 1991 to deliberate and confer on the data collection process. A workshop on U.S.-Japan Technology Linkages in Biotechnology was convened in June 1991 to gain additional insights from other experts in the United States and Japan. The staff of the National Research Council's Office of Japan Affairs, which also serves as the staff for the Committee on Japan, assisted the working group in data collection, and analysis and compilation of results.
