Welcome to COMPASS

Responsible Innovation 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. During the three years of the project we have developed and launched a number of elements of the Responsible Innovation COMPASS, an online platform containing a number of tools and services tailored to SME needs:
