Note: In accordance with the mandate given by the Science and Technology Development Act, no. 11 of 1994, NSF is conducting a survey of S&T personnel in Sri Lanka. We also propose to establish a complementary database of Sri Lankan expatriate scientists and technologists, who are presently residents abroad. We feel that with your expertise and experience you can make an outstanding contribution to the scientific, technological and economic development of the country. We are confident that you are willing to serve your motherland in some capacity and therefore we propose to utilize your services on specialist panels. We urge you to respond to this questionnaire promptly.
