Responsible research and innovation : from concepts to practices

John Pearson
  • Function : Scientific advisor


How can we, as a European and global society, decide on the goals and values that should govern the research and innovation that we expect to address the challenges we face? This is a key question facing those who want innovation to do more than just generate more gadgets and marketable products – those who want innovation to contribute to a just, fair, and sustainable future. This book takes on the problems of thinking, deciding and acting together to implement Responsible Research and Innovation. It does so by addressing four dimensions of what it might mean to innovate responsibly: ethical, political, legal, and economic. The chapters in the book aims to provide critical and constructive conceptual reflection on these dimensions, and to show how they can be used in reshaping the existing innovation system.The book includes chapters by researchers who have taken part in several pioneering projects on Responsible Research and Innovation. The authors provide valuable reflection on key concepts such as responsibility, transparency, co-construction, and value. They use their own experiences of contributing to building Responsible Research and Innovation to address the challenges of integrating these concepts into existing legal, governance, and practical frameworks
