King, A. General Policy of E.P.A. O.E.E.C. European Productivity Agency. Report on the second meeting of technical information officers, 1955, pp. 59–65. [The information activities of the E.P.A. fall into two categories: the exchange of information and the promotion of new developments through personal contacts. An example of the latter is the study being made of all aspects of automation. It is not enough to exchange technical information between scientists, it must be taken to non‐technical persons, and the small firms must be encouraged to make use of it. In addition there is need of more study of the non‐technical aspects of productivity: production engineering, work study, and the economic, social, and psychological implications. These are best tackled by teams of experts drawn from different disciplines.]
