With its series of events, c:o/re seeks to create a transnational research community to tackle pressing issues in science, technology, and society. Within this environment, researchers from all over the world can develop and work on new research questions that are able to respond to our present world characterized by technological interventions into almost every aspect of our reality – from nature and life to social practices and knowledge production – and the transformation of science through digital means and grand challenges. The aim is to bring together people from different fields of expertise and to expand the boundaries set by current academic formats and disciplines.

Lecture Series

Cultures of Research is the title of the Lecture Series we host every semester at our venue.
