SOCIAL TECHNOLOGIES

There's an interview with Adrian Smith, STEPS Centre Research Fellow, about "social technologies and niches for sustainable transformation" in the September edition of Saber Cómo (the monthly newsletter of the Argentinean National Institute for Industrial Technology). There are also contributions from Renato Dagnino from Unicamp and Hernan Thomas from Quilmes University.

Social technologies are processes of technology development that seek to be inclusive towards the poor and marginalised, as well as environmentally sustainable.
