Käte Hamburger Kolleg Aachen: Cultures of Research

HumTec - Human Technology Center

Duration since April 2022

EPReN is an interdisciplinary project based at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg "Cultures of Research" at RWTH Aachen University in collaboration with IWE1. The aim of the project is to involve different perspectives - from researchers to representatives of the general public - in the innovation process in the field of nanotechnology.

In this context, one of the research foci is the question of what possible visions of the future exist in connection with technologies in the (micro-)plastics sector from different perspectives. With this project, we want to improve research and technology development in a sustainable way by illuminating alternative futures. We try to bring together values, demands, expectations etc. from different perspectives.
