The Finnish Society for Science and Technology Studies (FSSTS) welcomes you to the 2022 Science Studies Symposium!

This year’s theme is “Collaboration as social practice: collaborative research environments and engagements across disciplinary and institutional divides”.

Research collaboration across disciplinary and institutional boundaries is a requirement of today for high quality and high impact science. However, what collaboration can deliver and how collaboration should be organized are challenging questions. The Science Studies Symposium examines the actual practices, challenges, feasibility, failures, and successes of research collaboration.

The event calls for presentations from a broad range of scholarship and discussions of interdisciplinarity in research and its practical realization. Please see the CFP for more details.

The Symposium is supported by the University of Helsinki faculty of law.
