EA European Academy of Technology and Innovation Assessment GmbH

We deal 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, we analyze and reflect these developments. Furthermore, we develop different future scenarios and test competing strategies experimentally in our own research infrastructure called EA Lab to provide guidance and policy advice to decisionmakers before those policies are implemented.

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

Our 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).
