Núcleo de Estudos de Tecnologia e Sociedade (nets@USP), in English Nucleum of Studies in Technology and Society, founded in August 2016, aims to encourage the culture of research in digital themes through the promotion of a collectively constructed learning, using the interdisciplinary approach brought by its members. The group has students from the Institute of International Relations (IRI), the School of Communications and Arts (ECA), the Polytechnic School (POLI), the Faculty of Law of Largo São Francisco (FDUSP), the Faculty of Economics and Administration (FEA), Faculty of Philosophy, Letters and Human Sciences (FFLCH) and the School of Arts, Sciences and Humanities (EACH).

In addition to the variety of areas contemplated, the project counts on members of both undergraduate and postgraduate students, increasing the diversity of visions and added knowledge.

In addition to interdisciplinarity, the activities and production of the Nucleus are based on four other principles:

  • Accessibility, consubstantiated in the search for treating the themes in the most didactic and accessible way possible;
  • Opening up, making available the events and activities of the Nucleus to all and everyone who shows interest;
  • Horizontality, through the valorization of the collaborative work, encouraged to the maximum in the context of the dynamics of decision and production of the Nucleus;
  • Seeks to value the regional reality and Latin American academic production, focusing on local / regional approaches and contexts in their discussions.
