Responsible Research and Innovation | RRI

RRI stands for “Responsible Research and Innovation” - a concept promoted by the European Commission, that has emerged in recent years as a science policy framework, which seeks to align technological innovation with broader social values, and to support the institutional decisions concerning the goals of research and innovation in conditions of uncertainty and ambiguity. RRI encourages these stakeholders to reflect and anticipate how R&I may shape the future, to remain adaptive and responsive to change and the increased complexity.

RRI promotes diversity and inclusion as well as openness and transparency in the development of Research and Innovation (R&I) policies, programmes and activities. RRI aims to engage publics and responsible actors (researchers, citizens, policy- and decision makers, business, third sector organisations and others) in the science and innovation field, to produce ethically acceptable, sustainable and socially desirable research and innovation outcomes in line with the values, needs and expectations of the European society.

The RRI approach has developed over the years and the term implies that societal challenges should be a primary focus of scientific research while indicating the methods by which that goal should be achieved. In such a context, Responsible Research and Innovation involves holding research to high ethical standards, ensuring gender equality in the scientific community, investing policy-makers with the responsibility to avoid harmful effects of innovation, engaging the communities affected by innovation and ensuring that they have the knowledge necessary to understand the implications by furthering science education and Open Access.
