In 1999 the IFZ - Inter-University Research Centre for Technology, Work and Culture launched the Institute for Advanced Studies on Science, Technology and Society (IAS-STS) in Graz, Austria. IFZ continues to be the host institution for the IAS-STS.
Broadly speaking, the IAS-STS is an Institute for the enhancement of Science and Technology Studies.
Each year, the IAS-STS hosts around a dozen international researchers for up to nine months. During this period, researchers explore the issues outlined in our fellowship programme, the focus of which changes every year.
Within the framework of this fellowship programme, the IAS-STS promotes the interdisciplinary investigation of the links and interaction between science, technology and society, as well as research on the development and implementation of socially sound and environmentally sustainable technologies.
