The Responsibility Navigator, developed in the Res-AGorA project, supports decision-makers to govern such activities towards more conscious responsibility.
What is considered “responsible” will always be defined differently by different actor groups in research, innovation, and society – the Responsibility Navigator is designed to facilitate related debate, negotiation and learning in a constructive and productive way.
The Responsibility Navigator supports the identification, development and implementation of measures and procedures that can transform research and innovation in such a way that responsibility becomes an institutionalised ambition.
The Res-AGorA navigator is organised in form of ten principles and requirements for responsibility-related governance. Each principle is briefly described and includes a set of questions which those interested in ‘navigating’ towards responsibilisation in Europe and beyond would have to ask themselves in order to arrive at practices and directions that are widely accepted. Principles 1 – 9 are illustrated by short fictive cases.
