The Policy Learning Platform organises a thematic workshop on ‘Open, Social, and Responsible Innovation’ on 27 November 2019.

During this one-day workshop the Research and Innovation thematic experts, Marc Pattinson and Arnault Morisson, will facilitate knowledge and assist regions with Open, Social and Responsible Innovation, new policy trends, raising stakeholders' awareness of the importance of Open, Social, and Responsible Innovation for better policy and societal outcomes. 


Join Innova-FI in the workshop that will focus on open, social, and responsible innovation

Research and innovation are driving productivity growth and thus economic development. It is widely recognised that research and innovation do not only have an economic impact but also social impact. Research and innovation are associated with the process of 'creative destruction' that can lead to social instabilities (unemployment, poverty, social exclusion) and global challenges (climate change, energy efficiency, pollution). As a result, modern economic growth must go together with societal progress. Open, Social, and Responsible Innovation (OSRI) can be a way to reconcile these two forces, bringing economic growth and social value at the same time.

Although Open, Social and Responsible Innovation are associated with different policy tools, they have common characteristics, such as quadruple-helix, long term strategic intervention, multi-level governance, co-creative processes, e-platforms, living labs, demand-side instruments combined and coordinated with supply-side instruments, participative, and based on strategic foresight exercise

The frequently associated policy tools for Open, Social and Responsible Innovation are:  

  • Open innovation: living labs, open platforms, e-platform, data-driven platforms, e-government; 
  • Social innovation: co-creation processes, social inclusion in research and innovation activities, quadruple helix for social transformation;
  • Responsible innovation: ethical guidelines, foresight, participatory processes, gender issues, mapping of regional societal challenges, impac
