lecture by: Prof. Dr. Matthias Groß


topic: Give me an experiment and I'll find a lab


more information: If you look at today's discussions about real labs or urban and living labs in the context of the energy transition or geoengineering, one might get the impression that experimentation first takes place outside the ancestral areas of science in the wider society and the laboratory falls behind. But how could this be framed sociologically?
