The Project

Our time is characterized by technologies that develop very quickly. These developments allow for applications that were still considered pure science fiction a few years ago. A successful market launch of such products depends largely on their social acceptance. This applies to both the civil and military sectors. In democratic states, an army cannot avoid considering the social acceptance of technologies and their applications in its planning processes.

The aim of this project is to evaluate the limits of social acceptance of technologies and their applications in a social environment that is as heterogeneous as possible. We need your help to achieve this. Express your opinion. It is up to you to decide on which technologies you wish to express an opinion.

The first phase is to gather as many ideas as possible about what applications a technology could have and whether you consider them to be acceptable or unacceptable. In a second stage we will visualize these ideas and subject them to further evaluation. If you leave us your email address when filling out the forms, we will make the survey results available to you on our platform.

We are curious about your answers!

This gathering of opinions takes place until: May 31st 2020

Cet article décrit l’évolution des pratiques de veille en Suisse romande depuis environ une quinzaine d’années, en se basant sur des enquêtes, des témoignages de praticiens concernant des cas particuliers, ainsi que sur le développement des réseaux : colloques, conférences et association professionnelle, le développement de la recherche appliquée et de la formation en veille. Finalement, il met en évidence quelques évolutions récentes observées. Pour chaque point, il met en exergue le rôle des professionnels de l’information.
