Responsible Innovation for An Ageing Society

The Assisted Living Project

  • Miltos Ladikas Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS), Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) (DE)


The aging population is a grand challenge to which innovation and technology development must contribute. However, this contribution must be developed in a responsible process with society and not be pushed on society. For this reason we need to build knowledge and experience on how to achieve responsible research and innovation (RRI) in the field of welfare technologies. The Assisted Living project deals with this challenge in Norway and provides comparisons with Germany and UK.
