Every once in a while, decisions are made to push the technological frontier to create new products or processes. Such decisions occur in a number of places on a variety of scales. When they are made, they bring into being R & D projects. A small percentage of these projects are especially significant because of costs, or risk or policy implications. They usually require decisions by governments to be initiated and implemented. These are the national technology projects.
