  • Milena Wuketich is researcher at the Institute for Advanced Studies Vienna (IHS) since 2014, which she already joined for a project in 2012. She is member of the research group ‘Techno-Science and Societal Transformation’. Currently, Milena is working on several international projects about Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), investigating Citizen Science as form of citizen involvement into science and analysing participation activities of the Austrian society to cope with intense refugee movements.

    Previous projects include the evaluation of a funding instrument of the German Ministry of Education and Research for participatory research projects on ethical, legal and social questions in the modern life sciences, and conducting participatory technology assessment (PTA) of direct-to-consumer genetic testing with high-school students in a project funded by the Austrian Ministry of Science (YouTest).

    In 2014, she was also working as research assistant for a project at the Hebrew University dealing with household policies and outsourcing of housework in different countries. Milena studied Sociology and Theatre, Film and Media Studies at the University of Vienna and at the University of Malta.
