Join the SMART-map Final Meeting in Brussels!
Posted by RRI Tools on 18 Sep 2018
The final meeting of the SMART-map project will take place on the 1st of October 2018 at Hotel NH Brussels Bloom in Brussels, Belgium.
The event - a full day conference followed by a cocktail reception - aims to actively engage participants in discussing the project results, discover inspiring examples on how to implement responsible innovation in industrial realms, and contribute to a lively debate on the future of responsible research and innovation (RRI). Representatives from companies in precision medicine, 3D printing and synthetic biology will come together with civil society organisations and policy makers, as well as industry associations, funders, think- tanks and strategic consultants, to share inspiring experiences.

Funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, SMART-map started in May 2016 and comes to an end in October 2018. Its aim is to provide innovators with tools that will help them meet society’s needs, concerns and expectations about new technologies.
During the conference, SMART-map project partners will present three specially designed roadmaps, i.e. the “SMART Maps” on Precision Medicine, Synthetic Biology and 3D printing in biomedicine. Each SMART Map contains a collection of concrete tools companies can use, and the results of industrial pilots implementing some of the tools in each of the three fields.
These experiences offer relevant examples of how RRI can help companies discover new business opportunities, anticipate trends in the market and improve their business and technological roadmaps while accounting for new values and societal instances.
The conference will also include a poster session where relevant RRI initiatives will be presented. Attendants are welcome to use this opportunity to communicate their own experience in the field of RRI to other conference participants. If you wish to attend, you can register by using this link. On the registration page you will find information about the conference venue and you will have the possibility to submit a poster proposal.
