This essay is a brief presentation of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). It is an interesting framework that the European Union has been building around science that is more aware of global challenges. It also highlights the usefulness of AHP/ANP as valuable tools to handle the complexities derived from the implementation of a multidimensional concept such as RRI.
