The purpose of the Responsible Innovation (RI) Special Interest Group (SIG) is to further develop the subject in the ISPIM community.
We bring together people from industry, academia, policy making and consultancy, in order to promote Responsible Innovation (RI). We use the term RI to refer to “a transparent, interactive process by which societal actors and innovators become mutually responsive to each other with a view to the (ethical) acceptability, sustainability and societal desirability of the innovation process and its marketable products”.
We promote the generation and sharing of knowledge about RI, and the development and application of methods and tools to apply RI in practice. Our aim is to make RI go mainstream, so that the industry can adopt it more widely. We propose that RI can help to realize benefits for society and for sustainability, and at the same time can help to create viable and successful business.
