By drawing lessons from earlier assessments and initiating new assessments/deliberative events to fill knowledge gaps (including clarifying the extent of uncertainties that will have to be addressed by decision makers), assessment practitioners and commissioners will produce integrated conclusions to support the creation of responsible policies for research and innovation.

The TranSTEP group will decide to end the process when a) they believe there is sufficient evidence (on facts, values, perceptions or alternatives) for concluding on the issue they have defined; or b) when practical constraints (such as available funding) makes it impossible to continue. At this point a report should be written integrating the results and deliberations of the process.
