The research perspectives of the Chair of Society and Technology encompass the diagnosis of foundational processes of transformation in society. One aspect concerns the development of theoretical tools for a better understanding of these processes. Another aspect focuses on the relations between transformations and their consequences for processes of innovation and decision-making. For this reason, we are working on a sociological theory of social fields. The aim of this theory is to analyze not only various pathways of socio-technical change, but also to carve out the alterations of contextual and environmental conditions of socio-technical change. Another related focus is the examination of transdisciplinary spaces of innovation, be it in science and research, in companies or in real-world labs. In this context, the focus of attention of our analytical and empirical work is on the co-production of knowledge. It is also a task of the chair to be an active part of concrete processes of socio-technical change and in shaping these.
