Autour de l’ouvrage : « Sciences et technologies émergentes: pourquoi tant de promesses? », dirigé et édité par Marc Audétat, Dominique Vinck, Gaïa Barazzetti, Gabriel Dorthe, Claude Joseph et Alain Kaufmann. Editions Hermann.

 

Les technosciences (numériques, bio- et nanotechnologies, neurosciences, médecine personnalisée, biologie de synthèse) sont accompagnées de promesses fabuleuses à l’attention du public et des décideurs. L’économie des promesses qui en résulte affecte le régime de financement de la recherche et la gouvernance du changement sociotechnique. Elle crée de l’engouement, soutient la compétition scientifique, attire des ressources financières et légitime d’importantes dépenses publiques.

Cet ouvrage réunissant une vingtaine d’auteurs met en évidence les cycles accélérés d’enthousiasme et de désillusion, les décalages entre horizons d’attente et les questions démocratiques qu’ils soulèvent.

Switzerland Plans To Allow Insects As Food

In February 2015, Switzerland was planning to approve some of the same insects as Belgium has been allowing.

Here are some interesting excerpts from this Swissinfo article:

“According to Evelyn Kirchsteiger-Meier, head of the department of quality management and food law at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences, the food safety office is looking, among other things, at a risk analysis by the Belgian authorities. “

“The food safety office notes in its explanation on the new regulation that insects must be frozen and heated before delivery because they are potential carriers of parasites and disease-causing microbes.”

“In addition, they must be recognizable as insects, so not processed. “This is to protect consumers from fraud, because the consumer expectations in our culture are that insects are viewed as pests.””
