The purpose of this brief is to summarise for policy and other stakeholder audiences the extensive empirical research which informed the Res-AGorA team’s understanding of ‘RRI-in-the-making’, highlighting the key lessons and policy implications of our work. It was clear from the outset that the notion of responsibility in Research and Innovation (R&I) is a contested phenomenon that is continually evolving and is historically and geographically situated. Developing a deep understanding of how the concept of RRI has emerged was critical in enabling the co-construction of a framework to assist and guide strategic decision makers and practitioners in Europe. The goal is to make R&I systems more responsible: responsive, inclusive and sustainable in the contemporary moment, with reference to the societal, technological, political and economic challenges and opportunities facing Europe currently.
