EASST’s international, peer reviewed, online journal Science & Technology Studies has four issues a year. It is fully open access with EASST members being emailed when a new issue is published. To view the latest issue view the journal site.


EASST Fund aims to promote national and cross-national community building within EASST, advance new questions, topics and perspectives in science and technology studies, as well as enable collaboration with non-academic actors publicly engaged in science and technology.

EASST wishes to support a range of activities such as the organisation of conferences, network meetings, seminars, workshops, etc. These can be either online or in-person or a combination of both.
We welcome network and community-building activities organised by, or leading to, the creation of national and regional academic associations or other academic and non-academic initiatives committed to the promotion of scholarly and public engagements with science and technology in the European region. Examples of activities supported in previous rounds: STS Austria launch event in Vienna, Spanish STS network (esCTS) annual meetings, Technosciences of Post/Socialism conference in Budapest, Mattering Press open-access STS publishing initiative. 
We similarly encourage the organisation of workshops and small conferences within Europe with the potential of making significant theoretical and/or empirical contributions to the field. Examples of supported activities from previous rounds: STS Perspectives on Energy conference in Lisbon, Does History Matter? Techno-sciences and their historically informed policies conference in Athens, STS and Development workshop in Amsterdam.

EASST especially invites applications from parts of Europe where EASST activities and membership are under-represented (Southern and Eastern Europe). We offer up to a maximum of €1500 for successful applicants. The proposed activities can be fully or partially funded by EASST. There are no quotas for the announced support categories.
