Global Inclusive Innovation – ProGReSS Beijing meeting minutes

How are economic development and growth shaping innovation across the world, and how can innovation be encouraged to tackle new socially focused objectives and challenges in different economies?

With the Beijijng meeting “Reaching all Sectors of Society with RRI: Global Inclusive Innovation” ProGReSS continued exploring the RRI criterion of societal desirability by identifying and examining sisters concepts from emerging economies. The team found that the concept of ”inclusive innovation”, as used in South Africa, Brazil, China and India, is especially relevant if RRI is to be a model for responsible innovation globally.

Pressing societal issues such as ageing in developed countries were also widely discussed in this meeting, alongside gender equality, and pro‐poor innovation.
