Atoms for Europe: Erasmus Intensive Program

Atomic Energy, the Threat of Nuclear Warfare, and the History of European Integration

Feb 27, 2014

Between February 16th  and March 1st 2014, NPIHP Partners participated in the Atoms for Europe Erasmus Intensive Program, hosted in Augsburg. The program brings together students and teachers from Austria, France, Germany, Italy, and Hungary to discuss the European postwar history with a special focus on nuclear issues. Both the belief in nuclear progress and the fear of nuclear warfare have shaped the European integration process from its very beginnings. Nuclear hopes and fears both united and divided the continent.

The presentations featured numerous NPIHP partners, including Magdalena Reitbauer, Elisabeth Röhrlich, Leopoldo Nuti, Marilena Gala, and Frédéric Bozo. To learn more about the Atoms for Europe Erasumus Intensive program, click here to visit the workshop blog.
