Abstract [en]

Trans‐national technological projects display certain features compared to national projects. Drawing on earlier work, this article delineates some of these features and uses them in order to understand a specific trans‐national project, namely a Nordic satellite in the 1980s. It is shown that some of the conflicts and difficulties can be explained by the fact that the project was trans‐national, but a fuller understanding requires specificities to be taken into account as well.
