Hagley Spring Symposium 2007 "TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION AND THE COLD WAR"
The conference's principal question is the impact of Cold War era military innovations on postwar American economic growth. Papers could consider the transition from military to commercial applications of technological initiatives in, for example, aerospace, communications, material science, propulsion, instrumentation, or computing. Failure or long delays in transferring technologies are of special interest. Given the state's central role in military procurement, papers must consider the relationships between corporations or research institutes, and state agencies in the design and development of new technologies.
