The network (SSTNET) provides a European platform for the development, discussion and dissemination of research on all social aspects of science and technology. It ensures an organizational frame for the organization of workshops at the bi-annual European Sociological Association (ESA) general conferences and organizes focused research meetings and conferences between the ESA conferences. SSTNET is setting up links to other academic and professional associations in the field of science and technology studies (national, European and international), facilitating research collaboration, joint research projects and publication among European scholars. In addition, the network is providing a platform for the dissemination of research reports, conference papers and conventional publications via the world wide web and electronic mail. Finally, SSTNET is promoting the exchange of young scholars of science and technology between European countries.
