21 Oct Technological Knowledge – Evolution, Methods, Structures
National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech) 2010
In its initial year as the German Academy of Science and Engineering, acatech made an essential contribution to the discussion about the formulation of the self-conception of the engineering sciences with the “Technological Knowledge” conference it organized. The interdisciplinary contributions focused on questions about the evolution, methods and structure of technological knowledge, i.e. questions about the continuation of the systematization of the engineering sciences. Against the backdrop of the discussion, the conference contributions reflect the principles according to methodology, scientific theory as well as the formal foundations of the engineering sciences.
