The Res-AGorA project

The Responsibility Navigator, developed in the Res-AGorA project, supports decision-makers to govern such activities towards more conscious responsibility.

What is considered “responsible” will always be defined differently by different actor groups in research, innovation, and society – the Responsibility Navigator is designed to facilitate related debate, negotiation and learning in a constructive and productive way.

The Responsibility Navigator supports the identification, development and implementation of measures and procedures that can transform research and innovation in such a way that responsibility becomes an institutionalised ambition.

Inclusion, Transparency, Reflection

The Res-AGorA navigator is organised in form of ten principles and requirements for responsibility-related governance. Each principle is briefly described and includes a set of questions which those interested in ‘navigating’ towards responsibilisation in Europe and beyond would have to ask themselves in order to arrive at practices and directions that are widely accepted. Principles 1 – 9 are illustrated by short fictive cases.

The Res-AGorA Responsibility Navigator is conceived as a ‘thinking tool’, not only intended to make individuals, organisations and institutional systems more responsive towards societal needs and preferences, but also to make existing and new governance instruments and arrangements robust, and to allow, encourage and process contestation, learning, and experimentation.
