Compared to the situation in other countries, the sociological study of science and technology has developed only hesitantly in Switzerland. The present text reconstructs this process from the 1990s onward and provides a sketch of the current state of affairs. It shows how early initiatives within sociology converged with a broader multi-disciplinary movement to strengthen and foster Science and Technology Studies in Switzerland. The "Research Committee Sociology of Science and Technology" and the "Swiss Association for the Studies of Science, Technology, and Society" played an important role in initiating, fostering, and coordinating activities across locations, languages, and disciplinary orientations. The local development of STS in places such as Zurich, Lausanne, Basel, Geneva, or Lucerne was neither synchronous nor did their dominant disciplinary orientations coincide. A few strong local centers of STS have emerged. Considering the Swiss situation as a whole, however, the dominant picture is that of a still institutionally fragile field of research and teaching, especially as the sociological stream of STS is concerned.
