Capability to create innovative technologies is commonly perceived as a basis for sustainable economic and social development. However, due to potentially destabilizing effects of new technologies, it is crucial to exercise risk and uncertainty assessment. Acknowledgment of limits of scientific predictions in case of radical innovation in complex environment results in withdrawal of absolute trust in experts’ judgment. It may lead to more inclusive process of assessment in the framework of “hybrid forum”. Creation of more inclusive institutions with real power to influence the technological policy may be perceived as a challenge parallel to the development of technology – not less important part of authentic modernization of the state.
