Pilots: How Can We Innovate Responsibly?
The goal of the PRISMA-project was to draw specific lessons about how RRI can be implemented in industry, ranging from small enterprises to large corporations to consortia with universities.
To this end, the project included cooperation with 8 different companies in the field of automated cars, internet technology, drones, biotechnology, synthetic biology, and nanotechnology. We will highlight the results for each of the pilots:
- Key information about the company
- The focus of the pilots
- Results: interview with management and key recommendations
- Link to detailed reports: implementation of the pilot and the design of the roadmap.

Results per Pilot 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.
This program really allowed us to join a community of academic, government industry and friends who are all committed to RRI.
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
