Department of Science and Technology Studies

The Department of Science and Technology Studies aims at fostering critical reflective debate concerning the developments of science, technology and society with scientists and students from all disciplines, but also with wider audiences. Its research is mainly organised in third party financed projects, often based on interdisciplinary teamwork and aims at comparative analysis. Beyond this the department offers its expertise and know-how in particular to practitioners working at the crossroad of science, technology and society.
