Seminar: ‘INNOVATION SOCIETY CAN TRUST’
NEW TECH NEW CHALLENGES
New technologies are providing new opportunities and will bring with them new challenges for companies and their CSR, Sustainability and Corporate Affairs teams.
Innovations in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, biotechnology, nanotechnology, internet of things, and robotics are now part of future business strategy for companies large and small, across all sectors. Complex challenges arise in using these technologies for social, environmental and economic benefit, and also in anticipating and responding to the ethical issues that arise from their use.

The PRISMA project is developing a RRI/CSR roadmap
to set a path for companies to improve the social value
of their research and innovation processes, and their
overall social performances. The roadmap is being
developed seeking to promote a common understanding
of RRI, and assist companies to:
– Embed RRI principles in specific R&I projects
– Make the business case for RRI
– Articulate a responsible strategy for their organization
The event will provide an opportunity to discuss and
shape the contents of the RRI/CSR roadmap, that will be
based on the outcomes of the PRISMA RRI case studies
at industrial level, by other stakeholders’ experiences on
strategic and structural changes aiming to implement
RRI and the analysis and discussion of existing CSR tools and initiatives.
Emphasis will be given also to existing norms, standards
and best practices in the field of innovation and social
responsibility, crucial to bring products to the market
The Co-creation Dialogue will explore the extent to
which a roadmap can contribute to responsible
innovation and business strategy, in particular when it
comes to transformative technologies, such as
nanotechnologies, synthetic biology, Internet of Things,
and autonomous vehicles.
