The Rise of the Nuclear System of Innovation in Sweden
() and Thomas Jonter
Abstract: The purpose of this article is twofold. Firstly, the
ambition is to analyze the role of the government in relation to private
industry in the development of the nuclear power infrastructure in Sweden
in the period of 1945-1970. Secondly, the purpose is to account for what
was actually made in terms of education, research and financial funding in
“the Swedish line” and to assess its importance for the swift take over by
the light water reactor system.
