Leaders and institutions in politics, business, public administration, and society are increasingly faced with new challenges and unanswered questions. To make informed decisions, they need help investigating and assessing a variety of positions and information. The field of STS offers research approaches and analytic tools that contribute to these processes.
STS engages questions such as: How has the status of scientific knowledge changed over the years? What is the difference between scientific facts and non-scientific facts? Who pays for science? How are research funds distributed among the various scientific disciplines? Who owns the results of international research projects? How are the social risks of research projects determined?
