RN24 - Profile & coordinators

PROFILE AND COORDINATORS OF RN24/SSTNET (Sociology of Science and Technology Network)

More than in other areas, scholars in the field of science and technology studies have made multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary efforts to combine

  • theory construction on changing relations between science, technology and economic and political systems,
  • qualitative and quantitative empirical studies,
  • sociological, philosophical, anthropological, historical, psychological, economic and political science  analysis,
  • science and technology policy studies, and
  • self-reflective methodological arguing.

Academic associations have evolved in the USA and Europe which reinforce this development. The field provides a stimulating and challenging environment for sociologists to bring in their disciplinary profile. In this context SSTNET offers a European platform for the sociologists to meet, exchange ideas and strengthen their specific profile for the interdisciplinary collaboration.


The network (SSTNET) aims at

  • providing a European forum for the development, discussion and dissemination of research on all social aspects of science and technology,
  • ensuring an organizational frame for the organization of workshops at the bi-annual ESA general conferences,
  • organizing focused research meetings and conferences between the ESA conferences,
  • setting up links to other academic and professional associations in the field of science and technology studies (national, European and international),
  • facilitating research collaboration, joint research projects and publication among European scholars,
  • providing a platform for the dissemination of research reports, conference papers and conventional publications via the world wide web and electronic mail,
  • creating and maintaining a www data base of the members of the network and the network’s activities, and
  • promoting the exchange of young scholars of science and technology between European countries.
