Technologies in Practice

About TiP

Research approaches and domains

The Technologies in Practice (TiP) Research group hosts researchers working with IT in different empirical domains, from public management and governance to innovation in private enterprises and public-private partnerships. We combine a range of scholarly disciplines, including Science and Technology Studies (STS), Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW), Anthropology, Sociology, Human Computer Interaction and Philosophy.

How we learn and work together

We have a dynamic environment with frequent formal and informal meetings and workshops. Every Wednesday, the group hosts an open discussion meeting for scholars interested in IT and STS called The TiP Salon, and an afternoon of writing with #shutupandwrite.
Members of TiP founded the ETHOS Lab, which is a social science/humanities laboratory in the field of researching data and digital methods, a community where researchers and students learn from each other as well as an interface where we build partnerships and relations between students and the world outside academia.

Take a look around the TiP site to learn more about us.
