MINT: Societal Impact of New Technologies

 
To understand the influence of technology on society in Zuid-Holland, DRIFT is conducting the research project MINT (Societal Impact of New Technological Developments / Maatschappelijke Invloed van Nieuwe technologie├źn) for the Province of Zuid-Holland.
 
The MINT project aims to collect knowledge and insights related to the context of the province Zuid-Holland. The project focuses on developments in two strands of technologies: production and information technologies, and communication technologies. Using participative techniques with a variety of groups from different networks, utopian and dystopian scenarios will be developed in order to sketch a number of possible pathways forward. The final results provide input for the Province to facilitate governance decisions on subjects suitable for further investigation, and inform future provincial (spatial) policy measures.
