Assessment of Responsible Innovation: Methods and Practices

The book presents tools for measuring, monitoring, and reporting upon the Responsible Innovation process and the social, environmental, scientific, and economic impacts of innovations. This book aligns assessment tools and practices with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The presented tools help innovators mitigate their risk and strengthen their strategic planning. The prospects as well as the limitations of various Responsible Innovation assessment methods and practices are discussed scientifically, as well as their applicability in various contexts.

The book consists of three parts: 

1.     The first part reflects on Responsible Innovation, and sets the background for the topic.

2.     The second part focusses on Responsible Innovation in an industrial context and the challenges associated with the implementation hereof. Industry is an important context for Responsible Innovation since many innovations originates here. However, it is often overlooked.

3.     Part three discusses (new) approaches, methods and metrics for the assessment of Responsible Innovation, focusing on the industrial context.

In-between the expert contributions, the book features best practices, which provide specific perspectives and ideas of how we can assess Responsible Innovation within stakeholders from different sectors: industry, government, academia, and civil society.
