As a result of discussions within the EPTA network a European multinational research project on the issue of participatory technology assessment was carried out from March 1998 to December 1999. The overall aim of the project was to advance the understanding of the role of participation of stakeholders and/or lay people in technology assessment by critically assessing the experiences to date of different European national participatory initiatives, to identify criteria for the practical implementation of participatory methods at relevant decision-making levels, and to contribute to the development of participatory methods and practices in technology assessment.
