Description and aim

Our main goal is to establish, for a wide variety of disciplines, how the Cold War affected the circulation of knowledge between the United States and Europe. How did the Cold War condition local practices and decisions? In particular, how was western European science reshaped after the American mold by US relief efforts aimed at reconstructing Europe? Reversely, we would also like to address how American science was affected by exchanges of knowledge across the Atlantic, under the Cold War conditions of sharing and secrecy.
