Welcome at STS
Science, Technology and Society Unit
 

Research and teaching at the STS Unit has two interconnected aims: to better understand the various societal and environmental implications of technology development and – based on this knowledge – to strengthen research and innovation in line with broader societal needs.

This type of research is conducted at early stages of technology innovation and in an inter- and transdisciplinary way by bringing together scientists and engineers from all disciplines and by involving technology users and stakeholder groups. We have a strong record in participatory research and are internationally acknowledged as a competent partner when it comes to implementing the principles of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). Within TU Graz, we see it as our task to help in maintaining it as a space to which the labels Responsible University and Sustainable University both apply.

Our research is frequently contributing to or organized as technology assessment, ELSA (ethical, legal and social aspects) studies, feminist studies, science, technology and society studies (STS), sustainability studies, policy analysis, and the history of science.
