Technology Assessment

The "WWW Virtual Library Technology Assessment" is part of the Virtual Library Community – a worldwide community of standardised thematic virtual libraries. It is provided as an interactive link collection for the EPTA community by the Institute of Technology Assessment (ITA), Vienna, and maintained with the help of the international TA community.

TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT (TA) investigates the use of new technologies within their societal context. Analyses provide the basis for developing technological and organisational design alternatives and regulatory measures which may be required. The overall aim is to foster a balanced development of society and the environment, which maximises societal benefits from technological progress while avoiding negative impacts. TA is always interdisciplinary, often transdisciplinary. Read more about TA, its methods and institutional forms here.
