Journal of Responsible Innovation

Article

Published in the Journal of Responsible Innovation by Richard Owen, René von Schomberg & Phil Macnaghten

Title: An unfinished journey? Reflections on a decade of responsible research and innovation

Abstract: Authors reflect on a decade of Responsible Research and Innovation(RRI) as a discourse emerging from the European Commission(EC) 10 years ago. They discuss the foundations for RRI, its emergence during the Seventh Framework Programme and its subsequent evolution during Horizon 2020. We discuss how an original vision for RRI became framed around five so-called‘keys’:gender, open access, science communication, ethics and public engagement. Authors consider the prospects for RRI within the context of the EC’s Open Science agenda and Horizon Europe programme, before closing with some reflections on the contribution RRI has made to debates concerning the relationship between science, innovation and society over the last decade.
