He also co-directs the Foundation for Systems Innovation (KSI). Johan Schot was the program leader of the National Research Program on the History of Technology in the Netherlands in the 20th century. This program included the publication of a series of seven volumes, Ph. D. theses, monographs, and scientific and popular articles, and contributions to exhibitions, policy workshops and websites for teaching. Together with Kurt Fischer he is co-founder of the Greening of Industry Network and project leader of several EU funded international projects. Johan Schot is also chairing the network ‘Tensions of Europe, Technology and the Making of Europe’. In 2002 the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) awarded him under the Innovational Research Incentives scheme for talented scholars (highest category) a research grant to establish his own research program (see www.tie-project.nl). In 2009 Johan Schot was elected to the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). From September 2010 until July 2011 he worked as a fellow at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS) in Wassenaar, writing and editing a six-volume book series (see www.makingeurope.eu). The book series, provisionally entitled Making Europe: Technology and Transformation 1850-2000, will be published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2013.

His current research examines the course of specialty manufacturing in the United States from World War Two through the 1980s with a special focus on Cold War technological innovation (jet propulsion, plastics, instrumentation, machine tools, materials and aerospace vehicles). In the jet engine case, he is exploring cross-national contrasts and resonances among engineering development projects in the US, Britain and France, 1940-1970.
