Debating Responsible Research and Innovation

 ‘Responsible research and innovation’ (RRI) is a discourse and policy framework that has emerged in recent years especially in Europe; while, the discourse of ‘anticipatory governance’ is a largely parallel and possibly more diffuse framework developed in the United States.

RRI has been described as a ‘transparent, interactive process, by which societal actors and innovators become mutually responsive to each other, with a view on the acceptability, sustainability and societal desirability of the innovation process and its marketable products’.

Debates about and experiments with the new framework of RRI are spreading quickly rising new questions.

The dedicated session scheduled for the Anticipation Conference, 5-7 November 2015, Trento (Italy) aims to promote a conversation between theoretical and empirical contributions coming from a variety of disciplinary perspectives (including from science and technology studies, sociology, philosophy, political science, amongst others).
