Pilot the roadmaps – benefit from roadmap creation mentorship by COMPASS experts!
In the roadmap co-creation labs 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. A dedicated mentoring scheme will be activated, offering dedicated networking and communication support services.
If you are active in one of the three emerging technology industries: nanotechnology, cyber security or biomedicine, and want to take part, please register for the COMPASS RI “Consulting and Mentoring Scheme” or contact us!
Why companies have joined the COMPASS Mentoring Scheme
We want to ensure that people, planet and profit grow by applying Responsible Innovation. We make sure that our innovations are challenging, fun and inclusive to all people involved. We contribute to a reduction of CO2 emissions, energy and waste. We do so in an atmosphere of trust, and use the leverage of new innovative technologies.
The COMPASS Mentoring Scheme helps us improve in all these aspects of Responsible Innovation.
Director at Spoorgloren
We are keen to do the right thing, and to collaborate and network with other companies who have the same values as we do. It is essential that any innovation is performed with care to ensure all results, both direct and indirect, are of benefit to society and cause no harm.
We have already felt a benefit from the COMPASS workshops and the guidance from COMPASS will help us to move ahead and take our Responsible Innovation practises to the next level.

Roadmap co-creation labs- the road so far
The Responsible Innovation Labs aimed to advance the understanding of Responsible Innovation in the nanotechnology, cyber security (infosec) and biomedicine sectors. The labs engaged companies, research projects, and high-level experts in a five-step series of online and offline interactive workshops to develop roadmaps towards Responsible Innovation in their field.
The labs took place between September 2017 and March 2018 and were all about co-creation and experimentation of new practices. They allowed companies to look at their own practices and methods to see what improvements can be made in order to maximise mid to long term profits or extend their markets through becoming more receptive to the needs of customers and users.
We co-created visions and roadmaps towards the integration of Responsible Innovation principles into the daily practices of SMEs. It is now time for the analysis of the roadmaps, as well as the preparation of the next steps for piloting roadmaps and tools developed by the COMPASS project!
