The first section of the chapter provides an overview of European institutions, particularly the Common Market, known formally as the European Economic Community (EEC). This overview highlights the legal foundations on which European industrial policy was built, and the institutional dynamics that shaped its path of development. The section titled ‘The Emergence of SRI Policy within the EEC, 1960-1965’ surveys the emergence of European industrial policy in the period from 1960 through 1965; the section on ‘Years of Revolution’ looks at the period 1966-1967, when a political crisis rocked the Community and fundamental conceptual changes occurred in the realm of technology policy; the next section looks at the period 1968-1970, which witnessed a further Community crisis and a ‘relaunch’ of European technology policy in CDP; and the section on ‘Unidata, 1971-1975’ traces the emergence of Unidata, its structure, and its ultimate demise in that period. Finally, the relationship between European technology policy in CDP and the history of Unidata is summarized.
