Welcome to the leading international institution for technology assessment!

At ITAS, we contribute to exploiting the potential of technical progress while minimizing its risks. Our addressees are politics, business, and society – the actors who shape scientific and technological progress. We offer them knowledge for action and point out possible solutions to global challenges.
