The final meeting of the SMART-map project took place on the 1st of October 2018 at Hotel NH Brussels Bloom! in Brussels, Belgium. The event was aimed at actively engaging participants in discussing the project results, discovering inspiring examples on how to implement responsible innovation in industrial processes, and contributing to a lively debate on the future of responsible research and innovation (RRI).
Representatives from companies in precision medicine, 3D printing and synthetic biology came together with industry associations, policy makers, civil society organisations as well as funders, think-tanks and strategic consultants, to share inspiring experiences. Participants were encouraged to discuss with them about future funding and recommendations to strengthen the ecosystem of RRI in industrial innovation.
SMART-map presented present three specially designed roadmaps, i.e. the “SMART Maps” on Precision Medicine, Synthetic Biology and 3D printing. 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 accounting for new values and societal instances.
Below you will find the conference programme.
