Presentation of TAB activities in the 19th legislative period
Against the background of the task of TA as independent scientific advice for parliament, which has been set by the Bundestag since 1990, Prof. Armin Grunwald emphasized the increasing recognition of technology assessment - in more and more European parliaments as well as in relevant scientific circles.
In addition, together with his colleagues from the consortium partners, Dr Sonja Kind and Michaela Evers-Wölk, he answered questions from the committee members about the different working methods and product types.
The TA rapporteurs from all parliamentary groups underlined the valuable support provided for orientation and decision-making in everyday parliamentary life and took the opportunity to formulate suggestions on how (collaborative) work in TA can be even more effective and participatory in the future.
The TAB Panorama (only in German) provides a compact overview of TAB activities (in German) in the 19th legislative period and is available for download.
