About acatech – National Academy of Science and Engineering:

Acatech consults independently and comprehensibly, presenting the opportunities and risks inherent to a technological development and showing how the results were obtained and what experts were involved. All working results are published. The principles upon which acatech’s consultation is based are set out in guidelines for political and social consultancy. If complied with, these guidelines ensure that both the political echelons and civil society players will receive science-based, independent, politically neutral advice geared at public welfare.
