The Political Promotion of "Future Industries" and Innovation in the Federal Republic of Germany and Great Britain, ca. 1965-1990

Ralf Ahrens

Research project

Historical research on politics confronting economic structural change during the last third of the twentieth century has mainly focused on the crises of ‘old’ industries (coal, steel, shipbuilding, textiles). By contrast, this project analyses the promotion of ‘future industries’ supposed to be especially innovative, and of research and development in general.

Associated PhD project

The project aims to analyze the relations between the German Federal Republic (FRG) and the former „model colony“ Togo after 1945 and thus attempts to provide a contribution to the German colonial history, embedded in a global historical framework.
