Deliverables

This page provides an overview of all the approved deliverables of the project plus a short introduction.

D2.4 : Lessons learned from pilots

The PRISMA project focus on 8 pilots with  industries. The technologies field involved were automated cars, internet technology, drones, biotechnology, synthetic biology, and nanotechnology.

The goal was to draw specific lessons about how RRI can be implemented in practice more broadly.  This report explains the pilots, the challenges  and  key findings.

D.3.3: Lessons learned from pilots

In this deliverable, we draw lessons about drivers and barriers for RRI from our pilot studies. These lessons are based on a reflection on other PRISMA deliverables, in particular D2.4 (outcomes of the pilots), D3.1 (the RRI KPIs for the pilots) and D3.2 (comparative analysis of the eight pilots). Also insights from the roadmap for RRI that we developed (D5.1 and D5.2) were used.

D.4.1. Stakeholder strategy

The aim of the Deliverable 4.1 of the PRISMA project is to provide for a dialogue strategy that can work as a guideline for the five stakeholder dialogues that will be organized, in the course of the project. As an outcome of this strategy, several stakeholders will be map and identified as possible elements to participate in the dialogues.

D.4.2 Report on stakeholder dialogues

The aim of this deliverable is to synthesize and present the main outputs of the five-stakeholder dialogues. The report is structured as follows: session 2 will present the approach to the events in terms of the methodology adopted. It will also present some general statistics on the events. The following sessions (3 to 6) an overview of the five stakeholders dialogue is presented, providing details on the aims, agendas and participants.

D.5.2.A PRISMA-Roadmap

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 RRI principles of anticipation and reflection, inclusiveness, responsiveness are considered.

The specific RRI pilot roadmaps developed for each of the pilot companies involved in the project were tailored to define a strategy that fits with the features of the company and the specific sector in which it operates and with the aim to improve the societal value and the overall performances of their products.
Some RRI actions have been experimented during the two-years of cooperation with the pilots others are indicated in the template of pilot RRI roadmap for future implementation.

The methodology to build a roadmap to integrate RRI in business strategies, is described in part A of the document (PRISMA exemplar RRI roadmap). Case studies are illustrated in part B (PRISMA pilots RRI roadmaps), describing the company specific RRI roadmaps developed for each of the eight PRISMA pilots.

The roadmap has been developed taking into account ISO and CEN standards regarding management systems in the areas of social responsibility, sustainability, innovation, quality and risks, such as ISO 26000, ISO 31000, ISO 9001 and ISO 56000.

D.5.2.B Roadmap case studies

Based on this experience, eight “RRI roadmaps” have been developed, 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).

D.6.2: Open Stakeholder Activities

A series of open stakeholder engagement activities have been organized in the period October 2017 to October 2018 to exchange views on using RRI in practice in different technology fields or innovation processes.

PRISMA: Responsible Research & Innovation in Industry

From pilots to CEN-standard  

The PRISMA project has conducted pilot studies with 8 companies in order to help them to better integrate Responsible Research & Innovation (RRI) in their innovation process and business practices. These pilots have provided case studies and good practices on RRI.   

Based on the experience with  eight pilots and consultations with industry and standard organization, PRISMA initiated an upcoming  CEN  (European Committee for Standardization) standard for companies aiming at developing a strategy for Responsible Innovation.

This  standard (also known as RRI-Roadmap)   is aligned with existing standards and policies on risk and innovation management, and corporate social responsibility (CSR), such as the standards ISO 26000, ISO 9001, ISO 31000, ISO 56000.

PRISMA Roadmap

Based on the experience with  eight pilots and consultations with industry and standard organization, PRISMA developed a practical guideline and standards for companies aiming at developing a strategy for Responsible Innovation.

The RRI-Roadmap methodology is aligned with existing standards and policies on risk and innovation management, and corporate social responsibility (CSR), such as the standards ISO 26000, ISO 9001, ISO 31000, ISO 56000.

Jointly with CEN, the European Committee for Standardization,  further steps will be initiated regarding the roadmap. See also our press statement.

PRISMA Pilot Results: Cases & Best Practices

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.

The PRISMA Toolkit for Responsible Research & Innovation

The PRISMA Project has delivered a toolkit for small or medium-sized companies that aspire to develop innovative products and services with which genuine societal needs are addressed and a contribution is made to both environmental and economic sustainability.
