Monitoring the Evolution
and Benefits of Responsible Research and Innovation

MoRRI’s main objective is to provide scientific evidence, data, analysis and policy intelligence to support directly Directorate General for Research and Innovation (DG-RTD) research funding activities and policy-making activities in relation with Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).

RRI is a concept that is recently gaining momentum but it still lacks agreement on its definition, content and details. Hence, part of this study is to determine the scope and the benefits or RRI for Europe by:

  • Operationalising the concept
  • Developing a sound conceptual framework and associated methodology, while at the same time
  • Testing the potential of this methodology to allow monitoring the current state and short-term evolution of Responsible Research and Innovation and its socio-economic and democratic impacts.

The monitoring lasts from 2014 to 2018. It is led by Technopolis Consulting Group Belgium in collaboration with leading European organisations and individual experts. Among the core partners are

  • University of Aarhus
  • Institute for Advanced Studies Vienna (IHS),
  • CWTS from the University of Leiden
  • Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI
  • INGENIO from the Politechnic University of Valencia
  • the University of Athens
  • the University College London (UCL)
  • SPRU from the University of Sussex
