The Chair of Society and Technology is following two aims. Firstly, it deals with the interrelations and foundation of society and technology. Secondly, the co-productive evolution of innovations and connected risks are examined from a transdisciplinary perspective. The chair is also involved in actively shaping co-productive forms of innovation. A major task of the chair is to develop, to offer and to spread “expertise in contextualization”. Core working areas are Science and Technology Studies, Technology Assessment, research on inter- and transdisciplinary innovation processes and theories of modern societies. By combining these different streams, we get not only a detailed and reflexive understanding of innovation and technology development but also a better understanding of their social, cultural and political framings.
