The Käte Hamburger Kolleg: Cultures of Research (c:o/re) studies the relation between science, technology and society. We are an International Center for Advanced Studies, based at RWTH Aachen University – one of the leading technical universities in Europe. Being associated to the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, c:o/re creates an interdisciplinary dialogue by bringing together scholars from various fields: the arts, humanities, social and natural sciences and technology. Our goal is to be a hub for academic exchange, facilitating insights into the transformations within science and society. c:o/re is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

To pursue this, every year we invite ten fellows to join us in developing fresh approaches to the commonalities and differences between cultures of research. Fellows can contribute from various perspectives, as c:o/re operates under four main themes: (1) Complexity, Lifelikeness & Emergence, (2) Emerging Computational and Engineering Practices, (3) Histories and Varieties of Science, (4) Expanded Science and Technology Studies.
