Science has development from a self-evident public good to being highly valued in other contexts for different reasons: strengthening the economic competitiveness and, especially in high-tech fields, as a financial investment for future gains. This has been accompanied by a shift from public to private funding with intellectual property rights gaining importance. But in contemporary democracies citizens have also begun to voice their concerns about science and technology related risks, demanding greater participation in decision-making and in the setting of research priorities. The book examines the legal issues and responses vis-a-vis these transformations of the nature of public science. It discusses their normative content as well as the inherent limitations of the law in meeting these challenges.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Aus den Rezensionen:

"... Alles in allem zeigen die facettenreichen Beitrage nach einer ausfuhrlichen Darstellung der aktuellen Konfliktlagen Wege fur die Zukunft auf ... Dabei zeichnet sich der Band ... durch eine verstandliche, inhaltliche Aufbereitung der Konflikte ... aus. ... Wissenschaftlern, darunter auch Juristen ... und Politikern auf nationaler wie internationaler Ebene durfte dieser vom Umfang uberschaubare Band nutzliche Denkanstoesse geben ... Fur den Schnelleinstieg - aber auch fur einen ganz speziellen Zugriff - eignet sich ausserdem das umfangreiche und mit grosser Sorgfalt bearbeitete Sachverzeichnis." (Marcel Bosse, in: Wissenschaftsrecht, 2006, Vol. 39, Issue 4, S. 366 ff.)

"... Der Erkenntnisfortschritt liegt indes, der Konzeption des Bandes entsprechend, weniger in rechtsdogmatischen Einzelfragen - in soweit findet man viel Bekanntes als in einer differenzierteren Einschatzung des Beziehungsgeflechts von Wissenschaft, Wirtschaft und Politik. ... die Beitrage stehen der zunehmenden oekonomisch motivierten Abschottung von Forschungsergebnissen zu Recht kritisch gegenuber und sehen bei der im Grundsatz begrussten `Demokratisierung' des Sachverstands durchaus Korrektur- und Nachbesserungsbedarf ..." (Michael Fehling, in: Der Staat, 2007, Vol. 46, Issue 3, S. 472 ff.)
