International Conference at the University of Bern

Transnational Perspectives on Soviet Cutting-Edge Technology

Second International Conference of the joint German-Swiss Research Group “Nuclear Technopolitics in the Soviet Union” (NucTechPol).

January 31 – February 1, 2019

Hallerstrasse 6, 3012 Bern
Room 205

The second international conference organized by a bi-national research cluster of the universities of Bern, Heidelberg and Tübingen aims at a broader contextualization of Soviet nuclear history within the trans-national history of Soviet high-technology. 
Many aspects of emerging technologies such as nuclear energy, spaceflight or computing were genuinely transcending the responsibility, competence and jurisdiction of nation states. 
At the same time, border-crossings were clearly limited to certain actors and their professional as well as personal networks across the “blocs”.
