Responsible Research and Innovation in industry-challenges, insights and perspectives
Martinuzzi, André ; Blok, Vincent ; Brem, Alexander ; Stahl, Bernd ; Schönherr, Norma - \ 2018
Sustainability 10 (2018)3. - ISSN 2071-1050
Business ethics - Corporate social responsibility - CSR - Industry - R and D management - Responsible innovation - Responsible research and innovation - RRI - Social innovation - Sustainable innovation
The responsibility of industry towards society and the environment is a much discussed topic, both in academia and in business. Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) has recently emerged as a new concept with the potential to advance this discourse in light of two major challenges industry is facing today. The first relates to the accelerating race to innovate in order to stay competitive in a rapidly changing world. The second concerns the need to maintain public trust in industry through innovations that generate social value in addition to economic returns. This Special Issue provides empirical and conceptual contributions that explore corporate motivations to adopt RRI, the state of implementation of concrete RRI practices, the role of stakeholders in responsible innovation processes, as well as drivers and barriers to the further diffusion of RRI in industry. Overall, these contributions highlight the relevance of RRI for firms of different sizes and sectors. They also provide insights and suggestions for managers, policymakers and researchers wishing to engage with responsibility in innovation. This editorial summarizes the most pertinent conclusions across the individual articles published in this Special Issue and concludes by outlining some fruitful avenues for future research in this space.
Deliverable No. 1.3: Sustainability metrics for the EU food system: a review across economic, environmental and social considerations

One of the main objectives of the SUSFANS project is to develop a set of concepts and tools to help policy and decision makers across Europe make sense of the outcomes and trends of the EU food system. This paper proposes a set of metrics for assessing the performance of the EU food system in delivering sustainable food and nutrition security. The performance metrics have been built up through the aggregation of a wide range of variables, which together help to monitor the achievement of four overarching policy goals for the EU food system, namely a balanced diet for EU citizens, reduced environmental impacts, competitive agri-food businesses and equitable outcomes of the food system. The project decided to take a hierarchical approach to aggregating from Individual Variables to Derived Variables to Aggregate Indicators to Performance Metrics. This approach aims at marrying the notion that decision makers want only a small but powerful set of metrics to communicate the findings of the assessment, with the need to substantiate these metrics with the best available data from a large number of sources in a transparent way. In this deliverable the current set up of the performance metrics focus on each individual policy goal. In a related report, the team explores if and how the performance metrics presented here can be quantified using available data and modelling tools, and which of the models of the SUSFANS tool box can estimate which ones of the performance metrics and how (report D1.4). In a final step the SUSFANS team will bring all performance metrics together in an integrated set that will allow a view across all four policy goals and thus across all aspects of sustainable food and nutrition security (forthcoming report D1.5). Further work is the quantification of metrics using case studies and prospective scenario analysis. In addition to their use for monitoring, the proposed metrics are geared towards quantification using selected computational modelling tools. As such, SUSFANS aims to assist in foresight on and the evaluation of transformative changes in the food system with rigour and consistency.
Sociaal ondernemerschap in de zorglandbouw : voorwaarden voor een kansrijke start

Het rapport ‘sociaal ondernemerschap in de zorglandbouw’ is voort gekomen uit de vraag van twee sociale ondernemingen: Stichting BREM en Stichting 4PK. Beide initiatiefnemers hebben de ambitie mensen met een grote afstand tot de arbeidsmarkt te helpen re-integreren. Zij doen dat door de inzet van mensen bij het verbouwen van gewassen in stadslandbouwprojecten. De afgelopen jaren is het aantal sociale ondernemingen in de (stads)landbouw toegenomen. Sociale ondernemingen zijn zelfstandige ondernemingen die een product of dienst leveren en daarmee primair of expliciet een maatschappelijk doel nastreven (SER, 2015). De financiële doelstelling van deze ondernemingen staat ten dienste van het primaire maatschappelijke doel.
Organizing Open Innovation for Sustainability
Ingenbleek, P.T.M. ; Backus, G.B.C. - \ 2015
In: Adoption of Innovation. Balancing Internal and External Stakeholders in the Marketing of Innovation / Brem, A., Viardot, E., Switzerland : Springer - ISBN 9783319145228 - p. 109 - 131.
Literature on open innovation has thus far predominantly focused on high technology contexts. Once an industry reaches the limits of a closed innovation model, open innovation may, however, also promise opportunities for sustainable development in a low-tech environment. Because in low-tech environments open innovation is unlikely to emerge spontaneously from the spillovers of R&D, it requires institutions that actively initiate and coordinate open innovation processes. This has subsequently important consequences for marketing, because buyers and sellers may jointly embark on innovation processes that are guided by a third-party organization. Based on a case study on an organization for open innovation in the agro-food industry, this chapter identifies potential contributions and pitfalls of these organizations. Results imply an optimal level between market—and organization-based forms of governing open innovation that depends on industry characteristics such as the stage of industry lifecycle. Implications for policy, business and future research of these findings are discussed.
