Technologies in Practice

About TiP

The Technologies in Practice 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.
We have a dynamic environment with frequent formal and informal meetings and workshops. Every Wednesday, the group meets for a research meeting called The Salon, and an afternoon of writing with #shutupandwrite. The ETHOS Lab was founded by members of TiP, and our PhD students convene a regular STS Reading Group. Take a look around the site to learn more about us.
