Abstract

This book argues that corporate responsibility (CR) tools can help realize the goals of the responsible research and innovation (RRI) framework. RRI is a newly emerging governance framework , promoted by public funders of research such as the European Commission. When RRI is applied in industry , funder requirements are not enough to implement it, given that private research and innovation funds are involved. Instead, we argue, CR tools are well suited to bridge this gap as they are self-regulatory and have been established to promote a common understanding as well as common means of performance evaluation globally.
