COMPASS project started: what opportunities for SMEs implementing responsible innovation?

Started in May 2016, the COMPASS project is one of a range of EU-funded projects focusing on the idea of “Responsible Research and Innovation” (RRI).

The project investigates whether RRI can improve research, development and innovation in industry. Possible improvements are being investigated both in terms of processes and in terms of positive outcomes for industry and society. 

COMPASS will pursue three overarching objectives:

  • Providing evidence for better uptake of RRI in industrial R&D&I,
  • fostering collaboration in three key innovation fields (healthcare, nanotechnology, ICT) and
  • promoting responsible and sustainable R&D&I governance of highly innovative businesses.

The main output of the project is an interactive online platform, the Responsible Innovation Compass, which will provide guidance and orientation tailored towards the needs of innovative enterprises, in particular SMEs. 

COMPASS will further explore improved business governance by facilitating co-creation of visions and roadmaps for RRI by stakeholders from industry, research and civil society.
