Current definitions of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) do not link up with the rationalities and the language of the business sector. Instead, a new narrative is needed, focusing on business opportunities, as well as providing a business case around it.
The LIV_IN project has developed a new narrative consisting of three elements:
business’ responsibility for impacts of an innovation
co-creation of innovations with a broad range of people and
innovation on a systems level.
On this basis, the projects makes a series of recommendations
Establish responsible innovation dialogues
Set up a clearing house for impact data
Empower citizens and foster capacity building for co-creation
Consider Societal Readiness Level equally important as TRL
Initiate a multi-stakeholder initiative on Responsible Innovation
Emphasize the systemic character of missions in Horizon Europe
Managing the impacts of Innovation
