Strategische und konstruktive Technikfolgenabschätzung



Technikfolgenabschätzung (Technology Assessment, TA) soll Gestaltern, Nutzern und Entscheidungsträgern in Gesellschaft, Wissenschaft, Wirtschaft und Politik Einsichten und Wissen liefern, um geeignete Innovationsstrategien zu entwickeln. TA soll die Entscheidungsfindung erleichtern und die gesellschaftliche Einbettung technologischer Innovationsprozesse unterstützen.
