The international centre is positioned where the fields of history, philosophy, and sociology of science and technology interface with science and technology. The focus of the centre’s work is on the manifold research cultures of the sciences, their commonalities, differences, and how they are transformed through solving complex problems, expansion of laboratories into society or digitalisation of research. The period of funding by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research runs initially until April 2025.
