STS Goes Dutch

23 January 2014

Just before Christmas, Jack Stilgoe gave a talk at the launch of the Rathenau Institute's report on Geoengineering. The Rathenau institute are an independent Technology Assessment organisation that informs the Dutch government and parliament about emerging technology issues. Jack's talk was on 'geoengineering as collective experimentation', looking at the challenges of governing research in this controversial area. For those who speak Dutch, more information is here:
