1. The technological gap between America and Europe with special reference to American investments in Europe
The groundwork for discussion of this item on the Agenda consisted of a paper prepared by an American participant which was distributed before the meeting. The sections were:
- Management is the key
- Quantity and quality in technology
- How much "fall-out" from space and defence research?
- The "Brain Drain"
- Ways of Developing Europe's Technology
- New Initiatives: Wilson, OECD, Fanfani
- The Role Of Direct United States Investment In The Transfer Of Technology
- Research By United States International Companies In Europe
2 Do the basic concepts of Atlantic co-operation remain valid for the evolving world situation? If not, what concepts could take their place?
The groundwork for discussion of these items of the Agenda was laid by two papers prepared by a United States participant and by a German specialist, the papers having been distributed before the meeting.
The author of the first paper began by pointing to the fact that to some extent an "Atlantic mythology" had developed over the last twenty years which exaggerated the degree of community actually reached among the members of the Atlantic Alliance. Two crucial questions had therefore been sidestepped: what for i.e., what are the purposes of the enterprise, and who controls-i.e., who commands and who benefits.
The author of the second paper began by saying that the word "disarray" was barely adequate to describe the present situation of the Atlantic Alliance. Decay and disintegration would more accurately sum up the present state of affairs.
