“After ten years of action at EU level to develop and promote the role of science in society, at least one thing is very clear: we can only find the right answers to the challenges we face by involving as many stakeholders as possible in the research and innovation process. Research and innovation must respond to the needs and ambitions of society, reflect its values, and be responsible”.

“Responsible Research and Innovation is about allocating tasks and roles:
risks should not only be addressed by scientists, normative issues not only
by ethicists, and above all, innovation not only by economists, otherwise we
can forget about being able to address the grand challenges”
