Technology & Society & Energy Transitions
In the form of lectures and hands-on exercises, participants of this course will learn how to understand, assess and shape such socio-technical dynamics. For this, we have organized speakers from diverse disciplinary backgrounds and with different perspectives to offer a broad range of topics. The course is taught by an enthusiast team of governance and innovation scholars, philosophers, and historians from the University of Twente, complemented by international guest lecturers from practice and science. After you have engaged in the intensive study and debate we offer, you will have a clearer view on the options and limitations of the conscious and responsible shaping of technology in society, on the difficulties of disrupting established socio-technical structures and how historical dynamics influence today’s choices.
