2016 STEPI TA Expert Seminar

 

● Title: Technology Assessment in the “Uncertain Age”

● Date: 14:00–17:30, November 29, 2016

● Venue: 1431 (4F), N4 (Building of School of Humanities & Social Sciences), KAIST

● Organizer: Science and Technology Policy Institute (STEPI)

 

 

● Invitation

Science and Technology Policy Institute (STEPI) invites you to our expert seminar on technology assessment (TA) on November 29, 2016 at KAIST, Daejeon.

 

As the social-technological system’s complexity increases, the uncertainties of its benefits and risks also grow. In today’s society, in the so-called “uncertain age,” the importance of technology assessment, a type of research process that concerns not only the positive effect of S&T on the human, societal, and the surrounding environments, but also the negative ones so that it can support balanced science technology innovation, is gaining more attention.

 

STEPI now holds the Technology Assessment in the “Uncertain Age” seminar with the most experienced experts and researchers in this field. We hope the discussions in this seminar will serve as a catalyst to find a new TA frame suitable for Korean political, economic, and cultural contexts.

 

It would be delightful for us to have you present at the seminar to share your opinions about the directions and roles of TA, and ways to increase its impact on our society. We look forward to your confirmed presence at this seminar.
