The Research Platform Governance of Digital Practices cordially invites you to an event featuring Klaus Hoeyer’s new book “Data Paradoxes: The Politics of Intensified Data Sourcing in Contemporary Healthcare”.

The event is hosted by Ulrike Felt (Department of Science and Technology Studies), Katharina Paul (“Valuing Vaccination”) and Barbara Prainsack, Director of the research platform and will be held in English. 

Klaus Hoeyer is professor of medical science and technology studies at the University of Copenhagen. He works with the organization and regulation of the healthcare system, with a particular focus on the introduction of new medical technologies. His area of expertise is ethics as a form of regulation and exchange systems for human bodily materials and health data. His previous research has explored, e.g., research biobanking, stem cells, property issues, forensic biobanking, public-private partnerships and public perceptions of genetics. More recent work has concentrated on data-intensive healthcare and the performativity of hopes, promises, and expectations in the shaping of new technology.
