Nuclear Power for Catalonia: The Role of the Official Chamber of Industry of Barcelona, 1953-1962
Salom, Francesc X. Barca
Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, v43 n2 p163-181 Jun 2005
Between 1939 and 1959, the regime led by General Franco pursued a policy of economic self-sufficiency. This policy inflicted great injury on Spanish science and industry, not least in Catalonia, and in its capital, Barcelona. In response, Catalan industry looked to a future made more promising by the advent of nuclear power. This paper describes the innovative role of an industrial body, the Official Chamber of Industry of Barcelona, in catalyzing one the first programmes of teaching and research in nuclear engineering in Spain.
