In this session, new trends in the development of Technology Assessment in Europe, Asia and the US were jointly discussed. Hereby the focus lies on national cases of “emerging” TA-initiatives and networks across Europe as well as TA-approaches and initiatives in Asia. The presentations reflected on sharing experiences with regard to institutionalization processes of TA in different national contexts, on the one hand, and pointing out differences of national contexts with regard to specific political cultures, on the other.
In the light of the fragility of institutionalization processes of TA (c.f. recent experiences in Europe) this session intended furthermore to contribute to a global TA community which might support emerging TA initiatives.
