The Value of ‘Measuring’ RRI Performance in Industry
Within the EU funded project ‘PRISMA’ (Piloting Responsible research and innovation in Industry: a roadmap for tranSforMAtive technologies, 2016-2019) we aim to (Cooper and Kleinschmidt 1995) help industries implement Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) strategies in their innovation processes, as part of their CSR policy, and (2) to provide evidence on how an RRI approach and explicit attention for the gender dimension can improve the innovation process and its outcomes. As part of our approach, we developed a method to intuitively score performance on certain RRI dimensions. The scoring method builds upon an earlier innovation quality monitoring tool, called the ‘success factor based live innovation project scoring and evaluation’ tool, and expands this tool with specific RRI elements. In this paper, we elaborate on the development of this scoring tool, and its potential value as a strategy to implement RRI in industrial innovation practice.
