Background

Tom Hope moved from the UK to Japan in 2003 with a PhD in Sociology, and first researched at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. Here it became clear that approaches from sociology could help engineers better understand the use of technology, and that sociologists need to better understand engineering. We need to think in a transdisciplinary manner.

This sensibility was brought with him to Tokyo Tech in 2009. Since 2016 the lab has been located in the School of Environment and Society, Department of Transdisciplinary Science and Engineering.
