I am a mathematician by education and a manager of interdisciplinary policy research by experience. In this paper, I want to use the style of my discipline to express the lessons of my profession. Through a series of propositions, corollaries, and theorems I will try to demonstrate my thesis of relationship between interdisciplinary science and policy: interdisciplinary science is a necessary aid to policy, and special policies are needed, in turn, to achieve useful interdisciplinary science. Strengthening this symbiosis should be a basic goal of science policy in the '80s.
