Call for Papers: Special Issue "Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in Industry"

posted Nov 9, 2016, 5:15 AM by Michael Obach   [ updated Nov 16, 2016, 12:53 AM by Bernd Carsten STAHL ]

The consortium of the Responsible-Industry project has launched a call for papers for a special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2017.

For several years Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) has been widely discussed, especially in the European context, but also in academic conferences and publications. Numerous EU projects under the FP7 framework, as well as in the Horizon 2020 program, have been conducted, or are currently ongoing.
Despite this significant attention, the focus of RRI was mainly on publicly funded research and the generation of recommendations for policy. There was less attention on practical ways of implementing RRI in companies. Due to the importance of private businesses in undertaking research and in particular innovation, the RRI discourse should cover the role of industry more explicitly. A key question is how RRI relates to other activities that may be of ethical or social relevance, such as corporate social responsibility.
This Special Issue of Sustainability therefore offers a forum for dissemination and discussion of the relationship between RRI and industry. Our definition of industry is broad, including companies of all sizes and industries, including the service sector. We welcome conceptual, empirical or experimental results that are discussed in a national or international context.

Suggested topics for this Special Issue on RRI are (list not exhaustive):
  • RRI in multinational companies
  • RRI in small and medium-sized companies
  • RRI in start-ups
  • Industry-specific RRI implementation, e.g., healthcare, ICT, etc.
  • Linking policy and management levels of RRI
  • Engagement of RRI stakeholders
  • RRI in an international context, e.g., Europe vs. U.S.
  • RRI and Sustainability
  • RRI and Corporate Responsibility
  • Methodological aspects of RRI
  • Limitations and challenges of RRI
Editors:
  • Prof. Dr. Alexander Brem
  • Prof. Dr. Bernd Stahl
  • Prof. Dr. Doris Schroeder
  • Prof. Dr. Andre Martinuzzi
  • Prof. Dr. Vincent Blok 
  • Guest Editors

Interview with Prof. Stahl by the RRI Tools project

The project RRI Tools published an interview with Prof. Bernd Carsten Stahl, the leader of the Responsible Industry project, entitled "Business and industry towards a responsible innovation: ICT in ageing". Prof. Stahl explains how business and industry can benefit from Responsible Research and Innovation: it helps them to comply with regulations and it sets them apart from their competitors. In particular, ICT may help dealing with ageing issues, but we have to think in a proper way how to innovate responsibly.
