Presentation of the EU Project COMPASS at the "Long Night of Research"

The WU opened its doors to the pub­lic for the first time on April 13th, 2018, for the „Long Night of Re­search“. Ex­cit­ing lec­tures and in­form­a­tion stands in­spired ex­change and dis­cus­sions, and food trucks provided susten­ance. With free ad­mis­sion, cur­rent WU re­search pro­jects were presen­ted, among which the In­sti­tute for Man­aging Sus­tain­ab­il­ity’s EU pro­ject COM­PASS was in­cluded.

The goal of the COM­PASS pro­ject is to make the topic “Re­spons­ible In­nov­a­tion” tan­gible for cor­por­a­tions. To that end, the pro­ject con­sor­tium, to­gether with cor­por­a­tions, developed a col­lec­tion of in­stru­ments that cor­por­a­tions can work well with. In the com­ing months, two of these in­stru­ments can be tested for free by cor­por­a­tions from across Europe: A flex­ible and ap­plic­able method for the devel­op­ment of a cor­por­a­tion’s re­spons­ible in­nov­a­tion strategy and an on­line self-check tool on the cor­por­a­tion’s strengths and weak­nesses regard­ing Re­spons­ible In­nov­a­tion. You can find all the in­form­a­tion regard­ing par­ti­cip­a­tion op­por­tun­it­ies, as well as prac­tical examples of Re­spons­ible In­nov­a­tion, here ht­tps://in­nov­a­tion-­com­!
