COMPASS has entered the pilot phase!

Over the last year we have been busy with creating sectoral Responsible Innovation roadmaps and developing a Responsible Innovation self-check tool for companies. These tools are almost ready for you to use, but first, we will be testing them with SMEs!

In the upcoming months, we will present the opportunities available for SMEs and other interested organisations to be the first to pilot the roadmaps and test the self-check tool!

Pilot the roadmaps– benefit from roadmap creation mentorship by COMPASS experts!

Throughout a series of online and offline interactions, we co-created visions and roadmaps towards the integration of Responsible Innovation principles into the daily practices of SMEs.

COMPASS supported companies in outlining tailored visions, setting concrete goals, identifying gaps, and defining actions and milestones. A limited number of SMEs now have the opportunity to participate in the piloting phase, where they have the chance to implement the sector-tailored Responsible Innovation roadmaps with mentorship from COMPASS experts.

COMPASS is launching a Call for Expression of Interest to offer 12 European start-ups and SMEs in the nanotechnology, cyber security and biomedicine sectors the opportunity to join the “Consultancy and Mentoring Scheme”.

The call for Expression of Interest is open until September 21,2018. For more information about the COMPASS “Consultancy and Mentoring Scheme” please check the Call for Interest.

Do you want to know which Responsible Innovation principles you have already incorporated? Do you want to get inspiration on how to bring your company to the next level in better understanding and serving societal needs? Then be the first to check your company with the COMPASS self-check tool.

The COMPASS self-check tool aims to help SMEs in highly innovative sectors assess their strengths and potentials for improvement, as well as provides users with specific measures and concrete examples to reach their goals. The self-check tool will also help you to identify concrete areas to focus on when developing your own roadmap to responsible innovation!

Upcoming opportunities to test the COMPASS self-check tool:
