Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI)

Responsible research and innovation is an approach that anticipates and assesses potential implications and societal expectations with regard to research and innovation, with the aim to foster the design of inclusive and sustainable research and innovation.

RRI implies that societal actors (researchers, citizens, policy makers, business, third sector organisations, etc.) work together during the whole research and innovation process in order to better align both the process and its outcomes with the values, needs and expectations of society.

The 6 principles of RRI are:

  • Governance
  • Ethics
  • Gender equality
  • Public engagement
  • Open access
  • Science education
