General Commentary.

Tuesday, September 4, 2018 - 4:14am

It will be interesting to highlight that the beginning of the Research Center on Science and Technology Policy Studies was not related to the study of STS theories and methodology, but on the need to catch-up on national technology production due to arise of the knowledge-based society. 

On the documents presented there are no references to other STS departments or research centers in other parts of the world related to the opening of TEKPOL. Therefore, the rationale behind its creation has to do more with traditional S&T policies then with strong ties with other STS Departments.  

If this is so, it will be important to narrate how STS studies became part of the project, or why the attempts to start contributions with other universities around the globe failed to succeed.
