Topics and projects

In parliamentary work, there is a growing need for knowledge about the impact of new technologies in all policy areas. TAB's topics and projects result from the concrete demands of the committees and parliamentary groups. In the projects, we examine the underlying scientific and technical developments, focus on the social and political relevance and offer orientation knowledge and options for action for a sustainable shaping of our community. As the radar and orientation function of parliamentary TA is becoming increasingly important in the context of numerous crises, complex risk situations and disruptions, we are gradually expanding our foresight activities.
