Our Misson

Our consortium organizes and promotes practitioners and institutions that use work at the intersection of philosophy and science/ technology to positively impact society. These impacts can be direct (e.g. philosophers working as facilitators in meetings between engineers and community members) or indirect (e.g. suggesting improvements to risk assessment practices in science). Our consortium’s interests include not only philosophy of science/ engineering, but also a wider array of projects under the umbrella of philosophy in science/engineering: epistemology of scientific expertise, ethics of pubic health, sociopolitical philosophy of environmental management, etc.
