[en] Although, the links between the ideologies of progress and technological developments are often strong, we are currently observing amore and more virulent social criticism of these evolutions’ consequences. This paper,written by four European and Latin American researchers, addresses the way as sciences and technology issues are criticised and dealt with in Europe in the framework of “TechnologyAssessment” (TA) offices. Then, important for the authors is to consider that although TA practices proved to be efficient in a European context, such a tool may not be transferable as such in another context. Relying on the concept of “multiplemodernities”, they focus on Latin America to stress the usefulness of building an adapted local TA capacity, through an interactive process of co-construction by the practitionners and various stakeholders, including the public.
