What Science and Technology for Society Means
|What Science and Technology for Society Means|
|This means "Technology for the purpose of building new social systems that integrate the knowledge from multiple areas in the natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences *" It is technology that takes society as its direct object and seeks to resolve problems that either currently exist in society or that can be anticipated to exist in the future.
*From "Regarding the Pursuit of R&D in Science and Technology for Society" (December 2000) Translation: RISTEX
Based on this understanding, RISTEX places value on interdisciplinary research by researchers and stakeholders working in collaboration. It also places value on R&D that constructs methodologies while also powerfully expediting actual implementation in regions and communities based on knowledge and interactive practice in the field of humanities and social sciences, as well as the natural sciences.
