For a general introduction to the project see the post CANDID takes a fresh look at smart tech for responsible innovation.


The CANDID project engaged in making sense of ‘smart’ — with reference to projects, agendas and programmes dealing with aspects of ‘smart’ homes and lives, cities and infrastructures on the science/society interfaces.

This involves dealing in design and user engagements, in managing ethical considerations and legal ramifications and in dealing with governance issues.

The process can be depicted as follows:

CANDID Work plan

The CANDID Modules are the main platforms with which the consortium will report on, represent and address basic insights and research questions relating to ‘smart’ in three development areas: User and Design Configurations; Risks, Rights & Engineering; and Sensing Infrastructures.

This Module-based orchestration of the work centres on scoping exercises, analyses and communications, taking account of disciplinary, professional and relevant experiential perspectives.

The Modules will consist of four components, presented at the project kick-off and updated along with the progression of the project. The Module components are:

  • A communications-oriented part
  • An academic SSH part expanding on the problems articulated and explained in the communications-oriented part
  • A log of comments and changes to the non-technical and technical components as they become exposed to various knowledge communities and networks (through the process of extended peer review)
  • Source materials used in all components of the Module
