The AIT - Austrian Institute of Technology and the Institute of Technology Assessment of the Austrian Academy of Sciences will provide scientific advice for the Austrian Parliament. Within the Foresight & TA project we provide a future-oriented monitoring of relevant developments in the area of science, technology and innovation and provide strategic advice in the field of scientific foresight. The monitoring will provide overviews of trends and related socio-technical options. Foresight & TA studies will be commissioned separately. The overall budget amounts up to 200.000 Euros per year.
