This deliverable presents an analysis of the externalities surrounding acceptability and trustworthiness in ADR-supported innovative technologies. Drawing from a diverse collection of business and academic reports, it provides a comprehensive examination of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats associated with technology integration.

The study employs a multi-faceted approach, including academic literature analysis, report analysis, stakeholder interviews, a workshop, and a survey. The theoretical foundation rests on two main key pillars. Externalities are analyzed through the lens of the Three Pillars of Sustainability (Purvis et al. 2019). Secondly, the issue of barriers and challenges in the adoption of ADR-driven technologies is addressed using the Technology-Organization-Environment (TOE) framework (Tornatzky & Fleischer 1990) and the Diffusion of Innovation (DOI) theory (Rogers 1995). The report proposes several useful mappings, such as mapping of stakeholders of ADR adoption, mapping of ADR externalities, and mapping of barriers for ADR adoption.

The findings of this meta-analysis are then reformulated as recommendations, which undergo validation by stakeholders. This deliverable illuminates the intricate interplay among the ADR technology, stakeholders, and societal considerations. It offers actionable insights to inform decision-making and drive sustainable technological integration within organizations, facilitating a balanced and sustainable trajectory in technological progress.
