|Engagement? Yes, if we are heard!|
Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) calls for continuous societal engagement. Up until now, citizens and third sector actors are not routinely involved in the governance of research and innovation. Citizens and third sector actors face specific barriers to engagement in research and innovation. Policies and practices in support of societal engagement should address questions of relevance, impact, trust, knowledge and skills, time and financial resources, and legitimacy.
