KOYS’ interests are aligned with the key targets and perspectives of Responsible Research and Innovation. In first instance the running studies and analysis in the domain of ‘public engagement in research and innovation’ that the KOYS approaches with the evaluation of User Centricity and Open Innovation / 2.0 schemes. Other two relevant themes are the analysis of best practices and the definition of indicators measuring innovation. The former assessed through an extensive study as done with the organisation the 3-steps procedure for the evaluation of user-centricity in around 500 cases (running services in Europe); the latter is included in each innovation impact analysis, the most relevant being the indicators for user-centricity carried out during the NET-EUCEN project.
Among scientific contribution, during the Eu-SPRI Forum Conference 2014, KOYS discussed about ‘Exploring the boundaries of RRI in the international arena of European innovation initiatives’, a study suggesting a methodology to support the implementation of RRI within the international arena of innovation activities by applying a “find and fill the gaps” strategy for cross-disciplinary cooperation among technology and social sciences, forecast the potential impact of new means and areas of cooperation.
The study is contextualised within research and innovation activities funded by the European Commission through international cooperative schemes.
