Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In today's knowledge societies, an increasing number of individual and collective decisions are made on the basis of scientific knowledge.
The communication and the 'translation' between science and society has thus in recent years become an important issue and at the interface between science and society, new institutions, professions and roles emerge. The number of so-called 'knowledge brokers', for example, has rapidly risen over the past two decades. The role of these intermediary actors is to foster the exchange, the translation, and the use of knowledge.

Assessment and permitted materials

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The aim of this seminar is to analyze these translators and translation processes, based on selected case studies (science shops, offices for technology transfer, knowledge transfer between research and health care, science museums, ...). We will do this through texts, group discussions, discussions with people involved in knowledge brokering, and excursions (e.g. in a museum).
