Le Savant, l'Inventeur et le Politique ou le rôle du sous-secrétariat d'Etat aux inventions durant la première guerre mondiale

Abstract : Scientific mobilization during the First World War was a major component of the war culture and meant a major step in the institutionalization of science in France. Thanks to the creation of the management and then the under-secretary of State for Inventions – which enabled the contribution of French science to the war effort – it acquired a new dimension. But in spite of the support of prestigious scientists, the under-secretary of State for Inventions was often criticized. It managed to prove its usefulness by favoring an ambiguous alliance among scientists, politicians and individual inventors and by taking into account both new weapons and soldiers' living conditions. By its existence, it contributed to the reorganization of French science, a demand made even before the war.
