EA European Academy of Technology and Innovation Assessment GmbH

The EA European Academy of Technology and Innovation Assessment GmbH deals with the relation of knowledge and society: Science, technology and innovation change our societies rapidly. They open new courses of action and create opportunities but also introduce unknown risks and consequences. As an interdisciplinary research institute, the EA European Academy analyses and reflects these developments. Furthermore, different future scenarios can be developed, and competing strategies can be experimentally tested in our EA Lab before they are implemented to provide guidance and policy advice to decisionmakers.

At the EA Lab researchers combine interdisciplinary empirical research with computational methods such as network analysis, agent-based modelling and social simulation. Based on the results of their findings, the EA European Academy informs policymakers and business managers when facing the economic, social and political challenges presented by developments in science, technology and innovation.

The EA European Academy was established as a non-profit corporation in 1996 by the Federal German state of Rhineland-Palatinate and the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
