Technology and Innovation is multidisciplinary journal. Its objectives are: to analyze systems and scientific and technical paradigms; study their innovation paths; discuss the connections of technology to society but also to innovation, examine how innovation disrupts the functioning of organizations and companies nowadays and in the industrial past, study stakeholder strategies (enterprises, laboratories, public institutions, users) in the production, use and diffusion of new technologies, understand the systemics of these technologies and construct scenarios of their potential diffusion and application; understand how innovation questions our categories of thought and upsets traditional knowledge mapping…and the meaning of innovation.
The journal welcomes articles from the following backgrounds: economy, management, history, epistemology and philosophy of techniques and innovation and design engineering.
