Our Research Field: TechnoScienceStudies

The MCTS focuses on analyzing the conditions and consequences of the technical sciences in thoroughly technologized societies. This includes new modes of technoscientific knowledge production, how technoscience is governed in (technical) universities, and how it is entangled with political funding strategies, industrial applications, and/or the expectations and objections of civil society.
