Disruption and Societal Change Center (TUDiSC)

Organisational unit: Interdisciplinaryinstitution

Organisation profile

The measure "Disruption and Societal Change” (TUDiSC) (formerly “Societal Impact of Disruptive Innovations” - SIDI) is part of the endeavor "Strengthening research areas with great potential" in the EXU focus PROFILE. It is intended to contribute to achieving scientific excellence and international visibility in all five Research Priority Areas of TUD, especially in the Emerging Field “Societal Change”, and thus to develop the university as a whole to a high level.

In joint interdisciplinary work, the aim is to elevate disruption to a basic category of research into societal change and to record its preconditions, logics and effects more precisely in a basic-oriented and exemplary subject-related manner. To the extent that this brings into focus the political, economic, social and cultural challenges that societies face in dealing with disruptions, TUDiSC has a social science, humanities and cultural studies orientation, but necessarily includes the expertise of natural, technical and life sciences in addressing these issues.
