Short Description:

The Europäische Akademie zur Erforschung von Folgen wissenschaftlich-technischer Entwicklungen gGmbH is concerned with the scientific study of the consequences of scientific and technological advance for the individual and social life and for the natural environment. The main focus is the examination of forseeable mid- and long-term processes that are especially influenced by natural- and engineering sciences and the medical disciplines. As an independent scientific institution, the Europäische Akademie pursues a dialogue with politics and society. An interdisciplinary approach is required, bringing together the results from natural sciences, engineering sciences and medical disciplines with thematically relevant studies in philosophy, jurisprudence, economics and social sciences.
In addition, the foreseeable results of research and development are related transdisciplinarily to expected societal needs and positions. Within its work, the Europäische Akademie takes up and develops approaches of Technology Assessment and the various fields of Applied Ethics. The Europäische Akademie seeks to assist in finding a rational way for society to deal with the consequences of scientific and technological developments. The Europäische Akademie expects its scientific work to have repercussions on the conception of science itself. By rationally reflecting the consequences of science and technology, the scientist’s responsibility as an important factor in the selfregulation of the scientific system shall be strengthened.
