Science, technology and innovation change our societies rapidly. They open new courses of action and create opportunities but also introduce unknown risks and consequences. As an interdisciplinary research institute the EA European Academy of Technology and Innovation Assessment GmbH (Germany) analyses and reflects these developments. Furthermore, different future scenarios can be developed, and competing strategies experimentally tested in our EA Lab before they are implemented to provide guidance and policy advice to decision-makers. The EA European Academy was established as a non-profit corporation in 1996 by the Federal German state of Rhineland-Palatinate and the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
