This book, first published in 1947, sets out to describe what co-operative research is, how it is organised and in what way it contributes to a variety of problems around the globe. The need for scientific research can often be beyond a single company; co-operative research can provide the people, materials and money on a scale that is otherwise lacking. The book looks at the scope of co-operative research internationally, with chapters focusing on the UK and US, as well as the rest of the world.
