Project Description


In the LIV:IN project, major industry leaders from the ICT sector join forces to co-create more responsible approaches to innovation for the first time. LIV:IN builds on the premise that recognition of the value of RRI among industries is necessary in order to progress further in integrating RRI in industrial contexts.

The project follows an opportunity-oriented approach in order to:

  • Activate industry leaders, experts and citizens to experiment with responsible ways of co-creating innovations;
  • Build capacity for RRI implementation and develop tools that are applicable across industry sectors;
  • Transform attitudes towards RRI from risk to opportunity.

*This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 787991.

LIV:IN will demonstrate the added value of RRI in the area of smart future living. We carefully selected this application area because it directly impacts the lives of citizens (societal relevance) but also constitutes a major emerging market (business opportunity). The project includes four key features that will significantly enhance the quality of the proposed coordination and support activities. First, six LIV:IN Labs and a virtual community of practice will constitute the central spaces for experimentation with integrating RRI in industry, and, consequently, the development of new approaches to innovation. Second, the application and continuous improvement of RRI tools in these spaces will contribute to capacity-building among industry and citizens alike. Third, embedded audiovisual story-telling will be the main vehicle for disseminating results and for shifting attitudes towards RRI from risk to opportunity. Finally, continuous dialogue with earlier and present initiatives in the areas of RRI, CSR and open innovation will ensure the transferability of project results across industry sectors. Ultimately, LIV:IN is guided by its vision to become a flagship initiative for effective integration of RRI in industry.
