Centre for the Study of the Sciences and the Humanities at the University of Bergen
The Centre for the Study of the Sciences and the Humanities (SVT) is a permanent, interdisciplinary and interfaculty institution at the University of Bergen (UiB) that is responsible for research, teaching and dissemination within the field of "theory of science", understood broadly as "research on research". The research profile of SVT is broad, with a focus on critical reflection over the science-society relationship. The Centre coordinates and participates in several EU/FP7- and NFR-projects on the ethical and societal aspects of science and technology. SVT is a member of the Norwegian Academic Council for Science and Technology Studies, and teaches "theory of science" with ethics in all PhD programmes at UiB.
