Comparative Table of Parliamentary TA Institutions


The way ahead

After the terrorist attacks in Norway July 2011, the Prime Minister has made calls for increased safety measures that do not infringe freedom and democracy. The Board has therefore established a project on security and openness that aims at providing Parliament and the Government input for tackling this challenge.

The Board will also continue its focus on welfare and care technologies, which are also included in the EU-project PACITA. In an ageing society, welfare gains will to a large extent rely on a wise and smart development of technology. Other planned projects include the future of power supply, medical self-testing and advanced manufacturing.

We aim to develop further our participatory methods, and are currently exploring the possibilities of doing participatory methods online and with social media tools.
