ITA Dossiers

The publication series of the ITA for politics and society

In this series, the ITA summarises the core results of its own research projects as well as of selected projects of other technology assessment institutions. The ITA Dossiers are only two pages long and present the topic in a non-scientific language with a view to options for actions in politics and society.

The ITA Dossiers are published here and on EPUB.OEAW/ITA-Dossiers. ISSN (online): 2306-196

Since we publish the dossiers according to the type and working language of the respective project, the following list may vary slightly from that in German. Click here for our German dossiers.

Da wir die Dossiers je nach Art und Arbeitssprache des jeweiligen Projektes publizieren, kann die folgende Liste zu jener in deutscher Sprache leicht variieren. Klicken Sie hier für unsere deutschen Dossiers.
