Responsible research and innovation

Research and innovation are inseparable from their social context. As "action-reaction" processes, their context can alter the course of scientific progress and vice versa.

While responsible research and innovation (RRI) is a relatively new concept, it is based on more familiar notions, such as integrity and ethics in research and technology risk analysis. One of the most important aspects of RRI, according to its current definition, is the need for society's engagement.

What does responsible research and innovation (RRI) involve?

  • All societal actors working together,
  • throughout the research process,
  • to better align both the process itself and its outcomes with the values, needs and expectations of European society.

RRI looks to answer three questions: 'who?', 'what?' and 'how?'
