IAIA, together with CSIRO (Australia) and ITAS (Germany) will be co-sponsoring a SCIRO workshop, “Assessing the impacts of disruptive technologies,” in Brisbane on 3 May. This workshop for targeted invitees will bring together members of the Australian research community and global research communities working in the domains of impact assessment, technology assessment, and responsible innovation to exchange knowledge and grapple with the challenges related to assessing the impacts, risk, and opportunities of novel and disruptive technologies. The workshop will focus on knowledge exchange with a view to identifying future collaborative projects in this rapidly evolving field. 

Invitees will include international colleagues from IAIA, the Institute of Technology Assessment and System Analysis (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany), the Research Council of Norway, the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, and the Chinese Academy of Science and Technology for Development (Ministry of Science and Technology, China).
