The Łukasiewicz –  ORGMASZ focused on technology assessment.

Our goal is to provide expert knowledge on the effects of introducing new technologies to support the decision-making processes of public administration, business and citizens. We would like society and the economy to benefit as much as possible from technological development, while minimizing the related risks.

Łukasiewicz – ORGMASZ, as an analytical unit of Łukasiewicz, specializes in socio-economic research conducted in the broadly understood area of STI (Science, Technology, Innovation). We organize and conduct consultations, and in a broader perspective, social campaigns, in line with the postulate of including citizens and stakeholders in the areas where it is possible.

We follow the idea of socially responsible technological development.

Main Activities

Technology Assessment

The purpose of our research is to find opportunities and desirable paths for developing technologies, implementing innovations, and resolving social issues. We identify market gaps to help enhance economic growth in Poland. We also indicate the risks of adverse effects of the implementation of new technologies.

Socially Responsible Technology Development

Technological development brings advantages as well as risks to society. We create recommendations that are aimed at mitigating adverse social and economic effects of technological changes. We organize and carry out public consultations and social campaigns to engage stakeholders and society in a debate about the advantages and disadvantages of implementation of specific technologies.

Technology Foresight

 

Forecast and scenario planning of technological development helps in planning and decision making concerning almost all areas of social life, economy, and governing. Effective foresight helps our partners choose the best paths of technology development and prepare for future changes.
