Technology assessment in East Asia: Experiences and new approaches

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Integrating social and ethical concerns in innovation practice is a well-documented and debated issue in the United States and in Europe (namely through the EU-wide PACITA project). Related developments in other parts of the world are less discernible - at least to Westerns. Yet, as witnessed by the emergence of technology assessment (TA) in countries like Japan, TA and TA-like activities have a unique and long history and continue to play a role in contemporary science, technology, and innovation (STI) processes (e.g. in the area of citizen engagement with nanotechnologies, or energy policy).
