Resource description

The aim of this paper is to explore technological roadmaps to identify key issuesconcerning the development and utilization of stem cells. From a review of the politicaldecision making processes in three countries, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Germanywe suggest that technological roadmapping in this emerging and discontinuedtechnology can provide critical policy information. This type of policy intelligence canbe used to rethink the regulatory practices away from today’s framework basedregulation of the emerging technologies towards a regulatory policy based on how todevelop regulatory practices based on the content and visions of the technologies inquestion. In the conclusion we discuss that the positive side effect of such a shift in theregulatory paradigm is that technological roadmapping can be used as a planning tool todeal with priorities in the health care system when the technologies are in its embryonicstage.Key words: Stem cell technologies, Roadmap, S&T policy.
