Science, technology and innovation studies (STIS) are crucial for understanding the dynamics of the contemporary knowledge society, and thus have an important role to play in the intellectual profile of the Universiteit van Amsterdam. Given the role of science and technology today, a social science faculty which is committed to the study of current social, cultural, political and economic changes, occurring on both local and global scale, must incorporate in its program a field which devotes its attention to innovation and to the manner in which science and technology develop. This Report has been prepared for the Faculteit der Maatschappij- en Gedragswetenschappen, and in particular the Amsterdam School for Social Science Research (ASSR) and the Amsterdam School of Communications Research (ASCoR). The first section introduces the field of STIS at an intellectual level. The second section briefly outlines the history of STIS at the UvA and provides some information about its reputation both nationally and internationally. The third section provides recommendations for consideration by the Faculty, ASSR and ASCoR. The appendices contain information about publications and other activities of STIS-identified staff within the Faculty.



What is STIS?

Science, technology and innovation studies (STIS) is a wide-ranging, inter- and multi-disciplinary field that aims to contribute to a better understanding of the contemporary and historical relations between science, technology and society in the broadest sense, focusing particularly on the ways in which expert and lay knowledges are produced, valorized, distributed and used. Within STIS, the ideas that science and technology shape society and that society shapes science and technology are the starting points. This is not to suggest that science, technology and society always and necessarily move in the same direction at the same rate. On the contrary, the multiple and various ways in which science, technology and society are mutually constitutive are the object of STIS research and scholarship. Many STIS studies focus upon local and contingent technoscientific practices but at the same time they recognized the international context in which much science and technology is produced and transferred.


STIS is a dynamic and growing research field, drawing upon insights from many disciplines and incorporating a wide variety of sub-fields. STIS does not have just one or two disciplinary parents, rather it is indebted to anthropology, sociology, history, philosophy and political economy. Science communication is a sub-field of its own. Moreover, media and communication studies are also becoming increasingly important for STIS as greater attention is paid within STIS to representations of science and technology in the media, and the role of such representations in affecting, for example, public opinion about new technologies or funding priorities within firms and countries. Some of the fundamental questions facing STIS researchers are almost identical to those of the parent disciplines in the humanities and social sciences: within STIS, we too are interested in questions of power, distribution, equity, identity, reflexivity and epistemology. But we think the answers to such questions will be richer and more meaningful if we understand the ways in which science and technology configure and reconfigure both knowledge structures and social relationships.

Thus STIS should not be seen as a specialty within a range of social science and humanities disciplines. It does have its own concerns, and it departs from the traditional disciplines precisely in its emphasis on the importance of science and technology in society and the ways in which the world is structured and the ways in which people are able to participate in it as citizens, consumers, workers, patients, travelers and the variety of other roles people variously occupy.


For example, medicine, health care, and the wider social meaning and management of health are currently undergoing major changes, and these are analyzed by many STIS scholars within the UvA. These changes shape and are shaped by developments in science and technology, which enable new forms of diagnosis, treatment and the delivery of health care. Changes in the locus of care and burden of responsibility for health intersect with scientific and technological developments. Today, genetics, informatics, imaging and integrative technologies, such as nanotechnology, are redefining our understanding of the body, health and disease; at the same time, health is no longer simply the domain of conventional medicine of  the clinic. The ‘birth of the clinic’ heralded the process through which health and illness became increasingly subject to the surveillance by medicine and the state. Although today such surveillance is more complex, sophisticated and precise than it was in the 19th and early 20th centuries (as seen, for example, in the search for ‘predictive medicine’), it is also more provisional, uncertain and risk laden. The ways in which new and emerging knowledge about health and medicine is produced and used by experts and lay people is an important focus of STIS work.


The social management of health itself is, at the same time, losing its anchorage in collective social relations and shared knowledge and practice, whether at the level of the local community or through state-funded socialised medicine. This individualisation of health is both culturally driven and state-sponsored, as the promotion of ‘self care’ demonstrates. The very technologies that redefine health are also the means through which this individualisation can occur – through ‘e-health’, diagnostic tests, and the commodification of restorative tissue, such as stem cells, cloned embryos and so on. Thus, developments in science and technology are always located within wider socio-economic and political processes.


STIS is characterized by its heterogeneity, interdisciplinarity and its international orientation. It is also relatively fast changing compared to many academic disciplines because of its sensitivity to changes in the scientific and technological environment as well as to social and political changes. This diversity and openness may be seen as offering both risks and opportunities. The opportunities arise from the breadth and dynamism of the field in its relationship to its major object, namely technoscience, and the possibilities for engaging with its development and use. The risks arise because there are no clear rules about who has the expertise to discuss STIS issues and it is difficult to refer to clear, discipline-like standards of knowledge production and evaluation. It can also be difficult to draw a line between scholarship and action. Innovation itself can be considered as a form of action. Making the innovation more knowledge-based requires by definition the crossing of an interface between knowledge production and diffusion. New ICT developments like the Internet have made diffusion mechanisms of knowledge as important as its production. The relation between diffusion and production of knowledge has itself become increasingly complex, for example, because of the possibilities of co-evolutions and bifurcations. These developments require the development of new bodies of knowledge at the interfaces between the natural sciences, the life sciences, and the social sciences. Among other initiatives, the systematic study of university-industry-government relations using a Triple Helix model was initiated by a conference on this subject in Amsterdam in 1996.


One reason for the growth of STIS over the past 30 years is the public’s growing concern and skepticism about the nature of technoscience and the reliability of scientific expertise. Nuclear power, climate change, agribusiness, amongst others, have all been subjects of intense political and scholarly debate. Political authorities have given more attention to STIS questions and there has been a marked increase in many countries in the number of initiatives concerned in one way or another with improving public understanding of and engagement with science and technology. There are many important questions which remain open about such initiatives, including what would the public like to know and why, under what conditions can different social groups participate, who decides which issues are discussed, at what point is the public involved and what are the purposes and expectations of such initiatives. Parallel to the growth in education, communication and participation initiatives, there has also been a regulatory boom, including regulation of both the conduct and use of science and technology. Again, there are questions about who regulates what, for what purposes and what is the knowledge base for developing regulatory schemes. More fundamentally, has regulation become a substitute for ethical reflection? Are all of these initiatives a genuine attempt by political actors to engage the public in democratic deliberation about technoscientific choices, or are they a cynical manipulation of public opinion to improve the acceptability of science and technology?



STIS at the UvA

Despite the lack of a formal place for STIS in the current organizational structure of the UvA, the University of Amsterdam is widely, and correctly, perceived to be a major centre of STIS research and teaching by many STIS scholars internationally. The UvA is and has, for many years, been one of the leading institutions in STIS in the world. In 1981, there was a government-supported initiative to establish an interdisciplinary department of ‘science and technology dynamics’. This was further strengthened in 1987 with additional government support for an ‘experimentele studierichting’. At that time, the UvA group co-ordinated a European ERASMUS network of seven of the most prominent European university departments in the STIS field. In addition, an international MA programme was developed which formed the basis for the establishment of the International School for Humanities and Social Sciences (ISHSS). The former department of Science Dynamics (Wetenschapsdynamica) ceased to exist within the UvA on 31 December 1999, as a result of a policy of mainstreaming such interdisciplinary work within a traditional disciplinary departmental structure. Nonetheless, the educational programme has been maintained with the development of an MA programme in Science and Technology Studies. Many of the graduates of that programme go on to do doctoral work at the UvA or elsewhere. The colloquia in which UvA staff, AIOs and visiting STIS scholars present and discuss their work have been continued.


There are many reasons for the strength of the UvA’s reputation in the STIS field, not least the very impressive publication record of the staff involved (see attached list of publications, honours, etc.) as well as the active participation of UvA staff in national and international STIS activities and associations, briefly summarized below. However, the major reason for the UvA’s reputation is the quality of the scholarship across the field. Rather than being associated with a single approach or method, staff at the UvA work on many different topics using a wide variety of methods. This pluralism gives the UvA its distinctive and valued position in the national and international STIS context.


After the dissolution of the department as a center of activities in 1999, the earning power for STIS activities shifted to other places. During the 1980s and 1990s the department took the lead in important institutional innovations like the creation of Access, from which the International School of Humanities and the Social Sciences (ISHSS) emerged; the beta-gamma program; and in collaboration with our colleagues in Maastricht and Twente the first AIO-Network from which WTMC was generated as a national graduate school (“onderzoeksschool”). The department also hosted a number of large government-funded and EU projects during its existence. Since 2000, this specific earning power has shifted to a belt of activities within and around the UvA: Paul Wouters, for example, created a research programme (NERDI) at the Royal Academy which was recently awarded with a second term as the “Virtual Knowledge Studio”; Peter van den Besselaar combines his directorship of a multi-million program of the Netherlands government on “Science System Assessment” at the Rathenau institute in The Hague with a part-time professorship at ASCoR. Several major initiatives within the faculty which led successfully to funding like the ICES-KIS project “Knowledge Network on System Innovations” of John Grin, the “Aids Medicines in Resource Poor Settings Research Programme” of Anita Hardon, and in many respects also Maarten Hajer’s “Amsterdam Centre for Conflict Studies” can be considered as part of STIS or STIS-inspired. Additionally, we mention flourishing activities in the humanities faculty (FdG) led by Gerard de Vries (Philosophy of Science) and José van Dijck (Media and Culture) which are integrated with the activities in the ASSR and ASCoR through the national research platform offered by the Graduate School WTMC.

UvA staff have played prominent roles in international STIS associations. Stuart Blume (1987-1991), Rob Hagendijk (1997-2000) and Sally Wyatt (2000-2004) have, at different times, been President of EASST (European Association for the Study of Science & Technology, 800 members, ). Chunglin Kwa was editor of the EASST Review from 1992-2006. Olga Amsterdamska was editor of the ISI-ranked journal, Science, Technology & Human Values (STHV) between 1993-1998. Other current and former UvA staff have been or still are members of EASST Council, the council of the Society for Social Studies of Science ( ), the editorial boards of STHV, Social Studies of Science and Scientometrics.  During the 1990s, Stuart Blume was President of the International Sociological Association’s section on the sociology of science. A series of international workshops, bi-annual conferences, special issues, and edited volumes on the Triple Helix model of industry-government-university relations has been convened and co-ordinated with ASCoR as one of the world centres of activity. 


Even though the UvA is no longer an institutional member of the national research school WTMC (Wetenschap, Maatschappij en Moderne Cultuur, ), UvA staff are regular and valued individual contributors to WTMC activities. Both Rob Hagendijk (1993-1998) and Sally Wyatt (since 2005, continuing) have been co-ordinators for PhD training. Rob Hagendijk is currently a member of the WTMC board. Stuart Blume has been its member in the past and Gerard de Vries is a former director.




The FMG/ASSR/ASCoR is asked to maintain and strengthen the national and international visibility and reputation of STIS at the UvA. In order to do this, the following actions could be considered:

  1. Re-appointment of the chair in Science, Technology, and Innovation Studies, to be a joint ASSR-ASCoR position, and thus with both research schools represented in the selection committee. The person appointed should function as the director of the education programme and be able to teach across the breadth of the interdisciplinary field. Secondly, the person appointed should develop a research programme about the intellectual and social organization and production of knowledge in science, technology and innovation. The research programme should combine the historical tradition which prevails in the ASSR with the more quantitative orientation prevailing in ASCoR. The person appointed to the chair should be able to demonstrate the following qualities:

·       Knowledge of the breadth of the STIS field;

·       Experience with both the cultural-historical tradition and the scientometric, quantitative tradition within STIS, especially with regard to methodologies;

·       Proven ability to further the educational programme, including the ability to convey the breadth of the STIS canon to students as well as the ability to manage, develop and innovate the teaching programmes further;

·       Demonstrated ability to communicate with and manage staff from different disciplinary backgrounds;

·       Ability and enthusiasm to develop the STIS research profile, building on existing expertise and developing (and securing funding for) new lines of research.

  1. In order to strengthen this development at the intellectual level we propose the following:

·       The Faculty/Research Schools provide financial support for an international workshop to be held in 2008 that would result in the publication of an edited book profiling STIS work at the UvA;

·       ASCoR to appoint an internationallyacclaimed STIS scholar in the field of science communication/public understanding of science to the visiting Baschwitz professorship.

  1. For the institutional coherence of the research program, we recommend that the Faculty/Research Schools:

·       Provide PR and financial support to continue the STS colloquia as STIS;

·       Host a web portal to bring together all of the STIS activities within the UvA.
