There is an increasing attention to Responsible Research and Innovation both in the private and public sector. Amongst others, Research Councils have introduced specific funding schemes on Responsible Research and Innovation and governmental bodies and private companies are supporting the use of codes of conduct, in particular sensitive areas of research. Furthermore, Technology Assessment offices are contributing to Responsible Research and Innovation initiatives.

Klaus Jacob will be a member of the Expert Group that has been established by the European Commission in order to write a report that reflects the state of the art of responsible innovation, both in terms of what is to be understood under responsible research and innovation and what type of actions are already being conducted in Europe.
