In order to recognize technological opportunities, it is becoming increasingly important for industrial nations to be aware of the current international stand of technology. The Technological Change Department of the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research is engaged in comparative international analyses of techno-economic performance standards in various technical fields. A focus of this work is biotechnology and its interaction with other technical areas. With the development of new technologies originally not intended side effects on society and environment may arise which counteract the intended effects of the technology. To cover this aspect of technological change, technology assessement is another major topic of the department's activities.
