The Danish Board of Technology Foundation
DBT is a non-profit, common good, foundation, committed to technology assessment, foresight, knowledge-based decision-making, parliamentary advisory activities on science, technology and innovation, collaborative democracy and methodological research.
The DBT works with a local, regional, national, as well as international perspective. It is specialised into interactive methodologies, involving trans-disciplinary research, stakeholder involvement, citizen participation, political deliberation and advice, and public communication. Especially in the domain of stakeholder and citizen consultation, connected to policy analysis, the DBT aims at being at the forefront of praxis.
The DBT has historically emphasized the importance of citizen participation and co-creation in technological development, administrative planning, and political decision-making. In its 30 years of methodological development it has built a world-class skillset for the facilitation of trans-disciplinary dialogue and solution-oriented research. In the latter years we have followed closely and contributed extensively to the development of the concept and practice of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
Within RECIPES The Danish Board of Technology Foundation is responsible for the public discourse in WP 1 and leader of WP 3 Development of new tools and approaches to the precautionary principle.
