Theory of technology assessment reloaded

Ten years after

Abstract

Some ten years ago, an emerging debate identified the following characteristics as possible cornerstones of a theory of technology assessment (TA): assessing impacts, complying with scientific standards, and providing policy advice. However, the debate soon fell silent again. However, the contributions to this issue’s TATuP Theme show that key questions concerning the positioning of TA as well as its concept of TA as both research and policy advice program have become ever more virulent.
