Fellowship Programme 2002/2003 Institute for Advanced Studies on Science, Technology and Society
The Institute for Advanced Studies on Science, Technology and Society (IAS-STS) offers five grants (EUR 1,000.- per month) for fellowships at the IAS-STS in Graz starting 1 October 2002, ending 30 June 2003. The IAS-STS promotes the interdisciplinary investigation of the links and interactions between science, technology and society as well as research on the development and implementation of socially and environmentally sound technologies.
The grants of the fellowship programme 2002/2003 are dedicated for projects investigating the following issues:
Technology - Gender - Education The particular emphasis lies on the analysis of the possibility of involving women in developing, designing and utilising technology and the promotion of girls and women in technology education programmes.
Shaping of Modern Biotechnology A further emphasis of the grant scheme comprises issues of the social shaping of modern biotechnology. Researchers dealing with relevant topics e.g. in the fields of public understanding and participation, technology assessment and risk communication are especially encouraged to apply for these grants.
Philosophy of Technology The improved understanding of fundamental aspects of technology, its origins and interaction with man and nature is the main focus of this part of the grant programme. We are particularly interested in research projects dealing with the agency of technology.
Ecological Product Policy Promoting environmentally friendly design, manufacturing, consumption and use of products represents a further focus of the grant programme. Research projects that contribute to a better understanding of the social and cultural context of products as well as analysis and strategies of an ecological product policy are of particular interest.
The grant application must be submitted together with an application for a fellowship to the IAS-STS. Prof. Arno Bamme, Director of the IAS-STS, decides on the awarding of fellowships and grants in consultation with the Scientific Advisory Board. Please take note of the fact that it is also possible to apply for a fellowship without a grant or to apply for a short-term fellowship (Visiting Fellows). Closing date for applications is 31 March 2002.
