The project

Science Technology and Society Trento – STSTN is an interdisciplinary project of University of Trento that aims to develop a sense of responsibility for the science and society relationship(s) among the researchers – with particular attention to new generations – and to offer a platform for discussions on these topics between university and different stakeholders.

STSTN activities

STSTN yearly organizes seminars for students, PhD candidates, and open to researchers and citizens. During these activities, issues related to science within society are discussed and explored from different perspectives.

STSTN is partner of PRINTEGER – Promoting Integrity as an Integral Dimension of Excellence in Research, a European project funded in the framework of HORIZON2020. The project intends to promote «a research culture in which integrity is part and parcel of what it means to do excellent research». The STSTN group has realized an in-depth media analysis to investigate how Italian and UK newspapers deal with research integrity and misconduct.

STSTN also support the Master in Communication of Science and Innovation (SCICOMM) of the University of Trento.
