The Agricultural and Applied Economics Department of the University of Minnesota was the principle contractor with Yale University taking an important secondary role. Discussions between the US/AID and the UM that led to the project were initiated in the fall of 1979. Research under the contract was initiated in June of 1980. It was revised and extended in September 1981. The objectives of the US/AID Asia Bureau in supporting the research to be conducted under the contract included: 1. to find out if they were investing in a productive activity; 2. to find the income distribution impact of investments in research; 3. to develop ideas on what to do next different crops, different institutions, different strategies. Framework and Methodology: the country studies started with short missions to Philippines, Pakistan and Indonesia by senior scientists from Minnesota and Yale to obtain an overview on the performance of the national agricultural research systems and the role of AID in supporting the development of the national research systems. The missions were also intended to lay the groundwork for a longer term in depth studies of the returns to research investment. These visits were supplemented by consulting experience of senior scientists in Bangladesh and India during the period of the projectSubject(s): SISTEMAS NAC DE INVESTIGACION | PROYECTOS DE INVESTIGACION | INVERSIONES | CONSECUENCIAS SOCIALES | PRODUCTIVIDAD | ASISTENCIA TECNICA | AID | RENTA | POLITICA DE INVESTIGACION | DESARROLLO AGRICOLA | INDIA | BANGLADESH | PAKISTAN | TAILANDIA | INDONESIA | FILIPINASDissertation note: Impact of research on agricultural productivity
