English Language Program
This programme aims to develop information resources, analytical skills and conceptual frameworks for researchers and students in technological change and innovation. It is designed to provide post-graduate training for academics of all backgrounds: social scientists, natural scientists, engineers and humanity scholars. The Master's degree programme is based on active participation by people from industry and engineering, policy-making bodies and academia from all over Europe. The approach is interdisciplinary, based on recent results from research at the frontiers of modern studies of science/technology and economy/society. The course aims to apply such research to social and economic analysis of innovation, to strategic decision-making and management of science and new technologies, to ethical issues in science and technology, and to political and cultural analyses of modern science- and technology-based societies.
