Chapter 15: The future of responsible innovation

John Bessant, Tatiana Iakovleva and Elin M. Oftedal


This chapter summarizes the different aspects of responsible innovation that have been presented throughout the chapters. We remind about three key themes of this book – digital healthcare risks opening up a digital divide, concept of ‘design space’ and responsible innovation, and the role of the patient in the innovation process. We discuss these themes referring to chapters of this book, and conclude by pointing that RI matter and its employment in innovation processes might help economic actors to achieve a better fit with market. We debate some challenges of RI that are beyond the scope of single actors and should be addressed on policy level.
