This ensures prompt computer retrieval of the necessary documentation referring to any research results. The BelNIINTl transfers anno­ tated lists, giving information on the results of research, experimental and design work in the construction field, to the Institute for Building and Archi­ tecture subordinate to the BSSR GOSSTROY; then this information is communicated to all bodies concerned for practical utilization. This system of scientific and technical information avoids duplication when planning research and design work and allows for more complete information on the results of activities in the construction field.

This is not a uniform development perspective. In some countries, the background conditions outlined earlier still prevail and the shortage situation predominates. In addition, there are islands of shortage in all countries which need to be eli­ minated by new construction.

How much then should that be in a "change-course" situation ? Should that amount increase or decrease compared to a "keep-on-course* situation ? g. issues which are new, or of im­ portance to interested parties with meagre resources etc.
