    Constructive Technology Assessment (CTA) aims at integrating anticipation and assessment of tech-nologies into the development and societal embedding of technologies. This paper explains basic the-oretical underpinnings of CTA and how concepts and knowledge of science, technology and innovation studies inform the methods and forms of CTA. Finally, it reflects on the possibilities and conditions for CTA approaches in different contexts and due to developments in the science policy and educational landscape.
