How to implement responsibility across an organization*?

On 2 October 2014, Arctik organises the final conference of the KARIM project where the results and achievements of the innovation project set up to assist SMEs in North-West Europe will be presented. It will take place at Palais des Académies in Brussels.

KARIM (the Knowledge Acceleration and Responsible Innovation Meta network) is an EU funded project that was set up to assist small and medium-sized enterprises in accessing innovation and technology coming from universities. Raising awareness on responsible innovation taking into account social, economic and environmental factors and facilitating innovation transfer between business and knowledge institutions is one of the main goals of the project.

After 3 years, the KARIM project has reached its final phase and Arctik has been tasked by the KARIM Consortium to evaluate its outcomes and whether the project reached its objectives. The outcome of the evaluation will be communicated through a final report that will be presented after the conference.

The KARIM Conference & Debate is being organised by Arctik and we expect to welcome a wide range of participants such as policy makers, representatives of SMEs and academia at the premises of the historical building of Palais des Académies in Brussels.

If you are curious about the results of the KARIM project you can register for the conference.

Stay tuned with #RespInnov to follow our discussions on the day!
