Innovation Meets Sustainability & Responsibility
Final PRISMA Conference, Brussels, 27 June 2019
PRISMA developed a road map/methodology to integrate values, societal impact, safety, sustainability and trust in the innovation policies of companies. The structured methodology is the result of eight pilots in companies that are all active in upcoming technologies (nanotechnologies, synthetic biology, Internet of things, and autonomous vehicles). The methodology – and a number of examples- were resented in this final event of the PRISMA project.

I think the main lesson that we have learned from the pilot is you can’t innovate in a vacuum. We have tried to do it for some time but you need others. You get the best results when you involve others.
With PRISMA we learned the importance of focusing on the ethical and social impacts of NanoMed since the early phases of the development, to become responsive and trustworthy toward needs and requests from users and society. This experience has convinced us of the strategic value of RRI for NanoMed and our organization.
As part of our project work that we’ve done with the PRISMA project, we’ve been audited effectively against certain criteria that were generated from the PRISMA project, to see how responsible our innovation is at RDM
