„Warum besucht man Kongresse?“: Deutsch-schwedischer Wissenstransfer am Beispiel des DGU-Kongresses in München 1929

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Drawing on contemporary publications in German and Swedish/Scandinavian journals and biographies as well as conference proceedings of the German Society of Urology (DGU), this paper examines the Swedish impressions of the 1929 DGU meeting in Munich. It focusses on why the Swedish delegates visited the congress and how they evaluated their congress experiences for their Scandinavian peers. Finally, the article shows to what extent a knowledge transfer from the DGU Congress to Sweden took place.
