Abstract

The general aim of this project is to understand how expectations, promises, practices and heuristics shape alignment and de-alignment processes in the co-evolution of science, technology & society with respect to nanotechnologies; how governance occurs in relation to alignment and de-alignment processes and how this can be made more reflexive in order to support the construction of socio-technical do-able problems. The research questions of this project are: 1) What are the multi-level dynamics in the co-evolution of science, technology and society of new & emerging technologies? 2) How does governance of new & emerging technologies occur? 3) How can strategies of actors be made more reflexive in the case of new & emerging technologies through socio-technical scenarios in order to support the construction of socio-technical do-able problems?
