The Vienna Science Studies Laboratory is a group of multi-disciplinary researchers interested in the diverse topics and issues of science, technology, and medicine studies. Originally an initiative from members of the CEU Science Studies Research Group, the Laboratory’s activities debuted in Budapest in 2017 and from 2021 on is based in Vienna.

The laboratory consists of monthly meetings where either a student or a faculty member present some of their work in progress and gets feedback from the other participants of the lab. The lab meetings thus serve as a means to improve our on-going work through friendly critical discussions and, in addition, for early academics to get a sense of what a professional work in progress looks like. Meetings are to take place at least once per month, and typically involves up to 10 participants to facilitate in-depth interaction.

The Science Studies Laboratory is always looking for participants to present their on-going research. Anyone interested in presenting or participating in the Science Studies Laboratory meetings should contact us for more information. Meetings are open for presentation suggestions until confirmed otherwise.


Due to the pandemic, the Science Studies Laboratory is postponed. It will relaunch in a new Vienna form once the pandemic allows in-person group meetings again.
