Responsible governance of science and technologies, in particular through the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), is becoming increasingly important among policy makers and researchers alike. In this Issues and Opinions Essay we show that influential contributions to this field highlight the need to rethink the relationship between science and society, including rethinking the roles and responsibilities of the different actors in the innovation systems. In this Essay we will focus on the function and practices of assessment of science and technologies. With the Essay we would like to open a discussion with academics, assessment practitioners, policy makers and stakeholders about the potential need for reform of current assessment practices and advisory institutions in light of discussions about responsible governance of science and technology in general and RRI in particular.

Abstract

Responsible governance of science and technologies, in particular through the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), is becoming increasingly important among policy makers and researchers alike. In this Issues and Opinions Essay we show that influential contributions to this field highlight the need to rethink the relationship between science and society, including rethinking the roles and responsibilities of the different actors in the innovation systems. In this Essay we will focus on the function and practices of assessment of science and technologies. With the Essay we would like to open a discussion with academics, assessment practitioners, policy makers and stakeholders about the potential need for reform of current assessment practices and advisory institutions in light of discussions about responsible governance of science and technology in general and RRI in particular.
