Conference paper


The Complex Program of Scientific and Technical Progress of the CMEA Nations to the Year 2000 (hereafter called CPS&T) was adopted at the 41st CMEA Session in 1985. This ambitious program aimed to raise the integration of science, technology, and innovation (ST&I) among member nations to a level above that accomplished during previous decades.1
