The overarching goal of the PRISMA project is to help companies implement Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in their innovation and social responsibility strategies, and to provide evidence on how RRI can improve their innovation processes and products and help companies to gain trust from society and build resilience, thus strengthening their position on the market.
Based on the experience in eight pilots with companies active in different sectors and technologies, PRISMA developed a practical guideline for companies aiming to strengthen consideration of ethical, legal and social impacts (ELSI) aspects in their technology and product development roadmaps.
The project has developed a RRI roadmap for each pilots, aiming to help these companies to
implement RRI in their innovation processes, in order to deal with uncertain and sometimes partly unknown
risks (anticipate), inform product development by dialogue with stakeholders (inclusion and reflection), and
address public and ethical concerns of transformative technologies (responsiveness).

Innovation Meets Sustainability & Responsibility
Final PRISMA Conference, Brussels, 27 June 2019
PRISMA has 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- will be presented in this final event of the PRISMA project.
