The COMPASS Project Launches a Call for Success Stories of RRI in Industry

The recently launched European COMPASS project invites the submission of success stories of responsible research and innovation in industry, in particular for the two key innovation fields nanotechnology and healthcare

Five winners will receive €3,000 each. 

Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises are particularly invited to apply. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 31 October 2016.

Each case study is meant to tell a story about responsible conduct in the areas of nanotechnology and/or healthcare innovation (including ICT in nanotechnology or healthcare). Case studies can describe a new product, a new service, a new social innovation, a new design, or a new business model - anything that would fall under the umbrella of ‘innovation’.

The case studies will be used to develop an interactive online platform, the Responsible Innovation Compass and will serve as an inspiration to other companies. All intellectual property rights in the case study will remain with the authors.  

For more details on this competition see this PDF file.

COMPASS is also looking for SMEs in the healthcare and nanotechnology sectors willing to take part in one of the first project activities, namely, interviewing of key tought leaders in industry to seek their experience and opinions about critical responsibility issues, success factors, and barriers for adoption of RRI in SMEs.
