#mytopic.in.society – MCTS Doctoral Colloquium

The research community at MCTS came together for the Doctoral Colloquium at July 12+13, which – as usual – marked the end of the semester. The doctoral candidates presented their work in 16 presentations and received in-depth feedback in nine breakout groups. Projects in all stages were well represented, from first introductions of concepts and ideas from candidates in their first year, to broader discussions of complex arguments and societal impact presented by third year candidates.

This year we were able to invite not one, but two guests to join our Colloquium and share their knowledge and experience: Prof. Dr. Morgan Meyer, CNRS director of research at the Centre for the Sociology of Innovation (Mines ParisTech, PSL) and Prof. Dr. Ana Viseu, Associate Professor at IADE, Faculty of Design, Technology and Communication, Universidade Europeia. Both kindly provided invaluable feedback to the doctoral projects and shared their insights into European STS.
