Aims and Perspectives:
The general aim of this sequence of summer academies is to
explore strategies for a more sustainable design of technologies as
an issue of science and technology studies. An important issue
within this context is the role of users in technological innovations
and perspectives for a more active involvement of users. This issue
raises questions such as: Would participative design processes
improve the quality of innovations from the perspective of users? Do
users have design- relevant knowledge and how can this knowledge
be incorporated into technology development? Is it possible to
organise user involvement effectively or do such strategies belong
to the realm of symbolic policy making? We certainly will also have
to ask questions like: What are the limits of user involvement?
Who are the users (e.g. of technologies not yet developed?) and
who speaks on behalf of users?

The summer academy shall provide a platform to combine both,
theoretical analysis and practical policy questions of shaping
technological change in a environmentally sustainable and socially
inclusive way. An important aim of the summer academy also is to
establish closer links to Central and Eastern European countries
regarding the joint effort of shaping technology as a means of social
and economic change.
