<p>This paper concisely reviews a variety of methods for technology assessment in a wide range of fields and points out that technology assessment is a multi-tiered concept. The word “technology assessment” was born in the United States of America in the 1960’s and then many methods for assessing technologies have been developed and implemented. The concept of technology assessment is composed of three elements: assessment of engineering characteristics of technology, assessment of social characteristics of technology and assessment of social values of technology. A better understanding of the concept of technology assessment provides a chance to discuss what type of technology assessment is required and what role it should play towards creating a sustainable society.</p>
