Introduction by the editor

Technologies, technological products, and techniques do not originate on their own but are the result of numerous perspectives, interests, and interactions between various parties (researchers and developers, political decision-makers, entrepreneurs, users, the general public) who co-operate in varying constellations during the different phases of the innovation process. Both real and anticipated impacts of technology can become problematic at every single stage of such a process, demands for strategic knowledge and knowledge for decision-making processes might arise and influence the decisions of the actors. What knowledge is taken into account when developing and approving new technologies? What selection processes influence the decision for or against technological developments in politics or the economy? Expectations of science to offer clear and unambiguous solutions to relevant societal issues can often not be met due to complex social and economical contexts.
