A number of useful publication have just been published by the SPRINT Programme. All are available free of charge from the SPRINT technical assistance Office. - An integrated approach to European innovation and technology diffusion policy: a Maastricht memorandum. This report is based on a series of brainstorming meetings held by experts in Maastricht and Paris which investigates the issues of developing and maintaining an effective policy of technological transfer. Topics include a general presentation of technical change, diffusion, political constraints, innovation as a cumulative and interactive process. The new "mission" for science and technology policy and the role of the EC are investigated in light of the long-term challenge. More immediate challenges are also examined, along with today's European policy concerns. - Better management through value analysis: Report No. 14394 (available in eight languages). This booklet is a practical demonstration of value analysis. It presents a number of interesting case-studies covering a range of the value analysis methods. - The future of RTOs in Europe (available in English): proceedings of the RTO (Research and Technology Organization) conference of November 1993. - A complete list of all SPRINT publications is available which includes a brief summary of the content of all studies and surveys carried out under the SPRINT programme.
