STI Tampere Network

Tampere Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) network is a group of scholars at Tampere University. They are joined by the passion to study how science, technology and innovation are shaped by and transformed through on-going societal, cultural and political processes in contemporary societies.

Activities of the network

The network organizes events in the field of science, technology and innovation studies. It also plans and coordinates teaching and research in the field at Tampere University. It participates in organizing national and international STI conferences. The network’s next conference will be Triple Helix Conference in June 2020.

The 1st STI Tampere lecture was held in 18 November, 2019. Distinguished professor Stephen Turner fromUniversity of South Florida, USA, was a visiting lecturer here. The title of his speach was: From an Ethic of Discovery to Science on Demand: Norms and Constraints in the Changing Landscape of Science. In June 2019 members of the network participated in organizing the Nordic STS Conference.
