Institute for Science in Society

The Institute for Science in Society (ISiS) is part of the Faculty of Science of Radboud University. ISiS hosts a variety of experts including philosophers, sociologists, anthropologists and interdisciplinary scientists with the aim to analyse, assess and improve the societal embedding of science and technology. We provide research and education for both Bachelor's and Master's at the Faculty of Science.

Our research and education focuses on how actors – whether they are scientists, citizens, technology developers, or nature conservationists – understand the world around them and how such understanding can be improved to facilitate the addressing of complex issues in science and technology.
