Abstract

The research project, Public Engagement and Science and Technology Policy Options (PESTO), SOE1-CT96-1016, has been conducted from July 1996 to January 1999 with the support of the European Commission, through its program in targeted socio-economic research (TSER). The project was carried out by research teams in Denmark, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
Our objective in the project has been to examine both the new social networks that are being constructed in science and technology in different European countries, particularly in pursuit of a more sustainable development, and to see how the broader public interest is being taken into account.
This report presents a summary of the results of the project, drawing on two published volumes of PESTO Papers and a large number of works in progress. A full list of publications and working papers is appended to this report.
