1. The Center for Research on the Utilization of Scientific Knowledge

    May 31, 2017 Ron Lippitt, Flloyd Mann and colleagues

    An advisory committee headed by Ronald Lippitt established the center to address the failure of organizations and individuals to make use of scientific knowledge. CRUSK’s goals were to examine how individuals and groups spread and use new knowledge, to analyze approaches to encourage knowledge utilization, and to consider the broader moral issues involved. Floyd Mann served as the first director. The center was disbanded in 1985 due to financial and staffing problems.
