Posted by Alex Esteban & Katharina Jarmai from the Compass project on 30 Jan 2019
COMPASS is an EU-funded project that supports Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) from emerging technology industries to manage their research, development and innovation activities in a responsible and inclusive manner. After three years of intensive work the project is coming to an end, and is launching an online platform containing a number of co-creation methods and tools that can help companies to embed responsible approaches in their innovation strategies.
On Tuesday, March 26, the project's Final Conference will be taking place in Brussels. The event will be a meeting point for companies, researchers in the area of responsible innovation in industry, innovation support organizations and policymakers. We would like to invite you to join us for the event and to share your experiences and insights with the rest of the participants.
Participants will be introduced to three main outputs of the COMPASS project:
- the online self-check tool
- the co-creation method for roadmap development
- roadmaps towards responsible innovation in nanotechnology, cyber security and biomedicine.
- Panel discussion between company representatives, investors and researchers
- Presentation of the responsible innovation online self-check tool
- Interactive roadmap co-creation session
Participants will receive first-hand accounts from pioneer companies, and will have the opportunity to share their own experiences and insights in the field of responsible innovation.
See you in Brussels!
Following the conference, at 5pm, FET2RIN will host a special pitch session for FET projects, to provide a stage to ten disruptive future emerging technologies. Pitches will be assessed by a judging panel made up of business angels, early stage investors and EU|BICs.
