Science, Technology and Society

About the Group

Studies on science, technology and society (commonly known as STS), try to understand the social aspects of the techno-scientific phenomenon taking into account both its modes of production and development, as well as social conditioning factors, its social and environmental consequences.

Interdisciplinary in nature, it brings together disciplines related to social and human sciences. STS tries to favor human progress and development starting from the promotion of and respect for democratic attitudes and practices, as well as a socio-economic development that respects the environment and future generations. It seeks to promote scientific literacy and stimulate a scientific vocation in young people based on reflection and critical responsibility.
