Dear readers,

As spring is slowly arriving, our research project on the History of Nuclear Energy and Society is entering its final year, which is devoted to a large extent to sharing our insights and discussing with stakeholders from society, politics, industry and associations. Hence we would like to start with an invitation:

An Invitation

5 April 2018, Munich, Discussing Nuclear Histories and Futures in Central and Eastern Europe

What shaped nuclear-societal relations in Central and Eastern Europe? To what extent did experiences differ between East and West? How do we imagine engagement of society in future energy decision making? These are topics for discussion at our stakeholder event “Discussing Nuclear Histories and Futures in Central and Eastern Europe”. It will take place on Thursday 5 April at the Deutsches Museum in Munich. It will also involve the opportunity to visit the museum’s exhibition on Energy Transitions.

You are cordially invited to participate and to spread the word. Registration is still open at Eventbrite

Please consult the programme of the event here.


HoNESt researchers have recently published on the history of perceptions of nuclear power in Spain:
Espluga, J., B. Medina, A. Presas, M. Rubio-Varas y J. De la Torre. (2017). “Las dimensiones sociales de la percepción de la energía nuclear. Un análisis del caso español (1960-2015)” [The social dimensions of the perception of nuclear energy. An analysis of the Spanish case]. Revista Internacional de Sociología 75 (4): e075. doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.3989/ris.2017.

A workshop on nuclear engagement with society in the Atoms for Peace campaign will take place in Barcelona on 28-29 May. Please find the preliminary programme here.

HoNESt will also be present with a talk on “Engaging with Society - Past, Present and Future. Results from the collaborative interdisciplinary project HoNESt - History of Nuclear Energy and Society” at AMNT in Berlin in May 2018.

We are looking forward to discussing our research and activities with you in the future.
