A new PhD programme in Science, Technology, and Humanities has been launched by the University of Bologna (Italy) in cooperation with the Universities of Exeter (United Kingdom) and Konstanz (Germany).

The programme combines fields like the history, philosophy, and sociology of science with an emphasis on “knowledge societies”.

The professors and researchers supporting the programme belong to a wide range of disciplines, including the history and philosophy of science, the natural sciences, engineering, medicine, economics, and literature.

Students will be enrolled in one of the three participating universities, and will be encouraged to spend part of their three-year course of study at another participating university.

At least two scholarships will be awarded for the next academic year, commencing in January 2009.
