A Global Resource
Edited by René von Schomberg and Jonathan Hankins
This chapter analyses the emergence and evolution of discourse surrounding responsible innovation during its adoption into the European Framework Programme of Research and Innovation under the name ‘responsible research and innovation’. This chapter shows that the politics of science and innovation has always been central to the rationale for responsible innovation, but discourse on responsible innovation has fallen short of discussing the political question of what type of future we want innovation to create. The authors go beyond a predominantly process-based form of the responsible innovation implementation, seeking to address a change for the good through a call for collective engagement that raises profound questions of what a right and good future should be, and which types of change we want to favour in order to help this future to come into being.
