Kommunikation Neuer Technologien. Das Beispiel Biotechnologie
Keywords:Biotechnologie, Empfehlung, Fotochemische Reaktion, Gentechnik, GND, Öffentlichkeit, Partizipation, Wissenschaftskommunikation
Biotechnology, or the application of science and technology to living organisms, is a prime example of the “new technologies” that define the extent of opportunities currently available to our modern society. Sociologically and historically analyzing communication activities, debates and controversies can inform us about novel and promosing communication approaches. Visionary fields of research such as Artificial Photosynthesis as well as controversial fields such as Genome Editing bring about the question how the use and the development of new technologies can be shaped as part of a comprehensive process of developing consensus on scientific requirements, interests, values and preferences, taking into account all interested groups of society.
