Dunedin, New Zealand will host the 27th International Congress of History of Science and Technology in 2025.
The Congress, which takes place every four years and which is set to attract around 900 specialist delegates, is the largest conference for the study of history of science, technology, and medicine, attracting researchers from both the Humanities and the Sciences.
The conference bid was led by host venue the University of Otago, with support from Tourism New Zealand and Enterprise Dunedin. “This win highlights a particular strength of the university, not only in the Health Sciences and the Sciences but also in areas of research/teaching that connect the Humanities with the Sciences and the Health Sciences. Science Communication and Bioethics also have world-class reputations here,” said Media, Film and Communication Associate Professor Hugh Slottenat the University of Otago.
