The association & membership

stsing is a new association. As such, associations need a legal basis, a Satzung. Even though this is a rather formal document that requires formal roles, we set up an organizational structure that aims for democratisation.

The purpose of the statutes is realised in particular through the planning and implementation of scientific events and research projects, exhibitions and projects. These events should stimulate the advancement of the individual's knowledge to the extent that they uncover different cultural and socio-specific perspectives and make world views accessible to each other.

During the virtual EASST/4S conference 2020 we discussed the last version of the Satzung. You can read the final text of the Satzung here (German, last updated 8th of April) and here in English (outdated version). It is now being formally accepted by the bureaucratic apparatus.
