Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) represents a paradigm shift in how to approach technological development and scientific inquiry. It focuses on guiding innovation processes toward societally desirable outcomes, specifically in response to global issues like climate change and food security. RRI advocates for a shared responsibility among various stakeholders including innovators, policymakers, and civil society. Originating in EU research programs, RRI has gained international influence, reflecting an evolution from earlier frameworks that prioritized societal and ethical considerations in science and technology. However, RRI faces challenges in implementation, often falling short of its transformative potential, requiring ongoing reform to truly align innovation with societal needs.
