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.
