The Call for Sessions for the 4th European Technology Assessment Conference


4th European Technology Assessment Conference

Value-driven Technologies: Methods, Limits, and Prospects for Governing Innovations.

November 4-6, 2019, Bratislava, Slovakia.

The Call for Sessions is now open. Please send abstracts (in English, max. 500 words) to by 15 January 2019 at the latest.

The central topic of the Conference will be value-driven technologies, from smart grids to wearables, from autonomous driving to men-machine interactions, from robotics to bio-economy, from food security to ageing and well-being. All such technologies are changing our society today and will continue to do so even more in the near future. The aim of the conference is to discuss how technology assessment and related activities such as science and technology studies, responsible research and innovation, public engagement, and foresight can contribute to knowledge-based policy-making on science, technology and innovation, to engage policymakers and other stakeholders in this endeavour, and to learn from each other’s perspectives.
