EXPERT & CITIZEN ASSESSMENT OF SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY NETWORK (ECAST)
Thanks for your interest in ECAST - we're excited about it too! ECAST will engage experts, stakeholders and everyday citizens in assessing the broad implications of emerging developments in science and technology.
: Around the world, the pace, complexity and social significance of technological changes are increasing. But the far-reaching social ramifications are often not understood until after new technologies become entrenched. This can result in important lost opportunities, significant social, economic, and environmental costs, and channeling societal development down long-term unhealthy paths.
: Our mission is to support better-informed governmental and societal decisions on complex issues involving science and technology.
ECAST will comprise a national network of nonpartisan policy research institutions, universities, and science centers working together to conduct nonpartisan and balanced technology assessments.
ECAST will use complementary expert, stakeholder and citizen participation approaches to technology assessment, disseminate the results broadly, and seek continuous improvement in the concepts and methods of technology assessment.
