BRIDGING BOUNDARIES: Science and Technology in Society

This project initiates educational exchange in the field of social studies of science, technology and medicine. Its goal is to develop a collaborative infrastructure between two interdisciplinary Master programs at the Centre for Technology, Innovation and Culture (TIK), University of Oslo and at the research Centre for Policy Analysis and Studies of Technology (PAST-C), Tomsk State University.

This cooperation is the first educational exchange program between Norway and Russia in the field of STS. It is funded by the Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and Quality Enhancement in Higher Education (DIKU).

Funded research stays in Siberia for TIK master students 2019 and 2020: 

 Do you have an interest in studies of digitalization, health technologies – and transnational collaboration? Would you like to work alongside Russian colleagues for a few weeks on an empirical theme related to your master thesis? 

In autumn 2019 and 2020, TIK master students will have the opportunity to visit the Centre for Policy Analysis and Studies of Technology (PAST-C), Tomsk State University for joint fieldwork with Russian students.

Two students from the Tomsk master program "Innovations and Society: Science Technology and Medicine" have already joined TIK´s master courses for spring 2019.
