Managing new and emerging science and technology

Funded under: FP6-NEST

Abstract

Managing innovative science and technology, where uncertainty in both the outcome of research and the potential benefits are great, is a difficult task. ATBEST will develop novel assessment tools for interdisciplinary research with high societal and/or technical uncertainty, to help manage these tasks. The tools will be validated by practitioners working in new and emerging, potentially breakthrough fields, such as fuel cells or nanotechnology. If successful, the �tool kit� will be a valuable asset for actors, ranging from public laboratories to private R&D, and high-level support programmes such as NEST.
