Bundestag continues to put its trust in KIT
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and its Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS) have been commissioned again to run the Office of Technology Assessment at the German Bundestag (TAB) for the next five years. This was decided unanimously by the Committee for Education, Research and Technology Assessment of the German Bundestag.
Commenting on the recommissioning of KIT, Dr Ernst-Dieter Rossmann, Chairman of the Committee for Education, Research and Technology Assessment, says: “All the factions agreed that TAB, which has been run by KIT and its Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis since 1990, should continue its highly appreciated and successful independent consulting activities for Parliament.”
Professor Armin Grunwald, Director of ITAS and TAB, says: “The trust that comes with the decision by the Research Committee is not least an indication of the visibility and acceptance that TAB has achieved. We look forward to providing options for action for Parliament early on, as in the past, by reviewing and assessing current and controversial social and technopolitical issues in a balanced, scientifically sound and understandable manner.”
