Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS)
ITAS creates and communicates knowledge on the impacts of human action and their evaluation in view of the development and use of new technologies. Its work focuses on environmental, economic, social and political-institutional issues. Alternative options for action and design are developed and assessed. In this way ITAS supports politics, science, business and the general public in future decision-making on the basis of the best available knowledge and rational assessments. The production of knowledge on consequences meets a social demand for advice, and concrete advice is based on scientific knowledge. For this purpose, ITAS applies and upgrades methods of technology assessment and systems analysis.
