This class will examine Science and Technology Policy, with particular attention to the European Union and (for comparison) the United States. The course begins with an overview of technological innovation, and of the current state of science and policymaking in the EU and the US. The class then examines how governments can encourage scientific and technological innovation, and concludes by asking whether government and society can (or should) try to limit or control technological innovation.
