Responsible Research and Innovation for trusted products

Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), includes anticipating and responding to potential future uses of new technologies, and is emerging as a powerful science policy discourse. However, it is still a vague concept for many ICT researchers and practitioners.

Earlier work conducted in the Horizon Services Campaign identified that ideation and design activities using cards can be effective in scaffolding analysis, reflection and learning. In collaboration with ORBIT and through engagement with the TAS Hub and TAS Nodes, this project will explore current RRI practices among the ICT community, addressing barriers and facilitators for RRI implementation and will develop and validate online/offline card-based approaches to RRI, promoting an RRI culture within and beyond Horizon.
