Responsible Research and Innovation in Industry


Based on research done in other projects and additional insights gained during the Responsible-Industry project, this video gives a brief overview of the role of RRI in industry.


Responsible Research and Innovation in ICT

Researchers at two UK universities: Oxford University and De Montfort University, have launched a project that will provide the first comprehensive study of the ethical and moral issues arising from the increased use of new technology. The Framework for Responsible Research and Innovation in ICT project has brought together a team from the University of Oxford's e-Research Centre and researchers from the Centre for Computing and Social Responsibility.


The research is looking at how social and ethical considerations can be incorporated into the design process of new products and services and how organisations should manage the ethical dilemmas that arise through the use of information technology.
