                               RESPONSIBLE GOVERNANCE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGIES

                                        PERSPECTIVES FROM EUROPE, CHINA AND INDIA

 

 

Aim of the workshop

A socially and ethically responsible development of emerging sciences and technologies is essential, in Europe and elsewhere. This is particularly true, because several forms of new technologies can be characterised as scientifically complex innovations, presenting uncertainties related to their application. There is also a need to bring in global perspectives in S&T governance issues as debates are becoming increasingly internationalised and solutions require common governance frameworks. The STOA workshop would like to present results of some on-going projects on this matter funded by the European Commission. The event will be also an opportunity to compare the European perspective with experiences and contributions from China and India.
