AsSIST-UK represents academics and researchers in the broad field of science, technology and innovation studies. It is open to all UK and overseas colleagues and provides an important platform through which we can influence debate at national level, feed into and respond to UK research council and other funding agency initiatives, and support the new generation of STIS scholars – especially PhDs and postdocs – as well as engage with national and international bodies, such as EASST and 4S.
Membership currently runs at 360, primarily drawn from UK academic institutions. There is no charge for membership.
A Register of Members including all research interests has been created, and is only open to Members.
Membership benefits include:
- Access to all members’ research interests to foster exchange and collaboration
- Regular Newsletters
- Information about the annual conferences and related events of the Association
- A platform through which members can lobby UK research policy and funding agencies
- A vehicle for stronger co-ordination across PhD networks, especially through its affiliation with the Postgraduate Forum for Science, Technology, Innovation and Society (PF-STIS) see: http://www.pfstis.co.uk/
The Membership form can be found below and the form should be returned to AsSIST Executive (email).
