The Science and Democracy Network

The Science and Democracy Network (SDN) was established in 2002 to enhance the quality and significance of scholarship in science and technology studies (STS) by training young professionals and by forging links between STS and related fields of study and practice.

The SDN sponsors an annual meeting whose primary goal is to strengthen and deepen STS scholarship on science and democracy, and to provide training opportunities for young STS scholars to enable them to participate more effectively in decision processes and public affairs.
