A central proposition of Responsible Innovation approach is that most societal problems and global challenges require a radically interdisciplinary solution, in which contributions from ethics, law and social science are integrated into the development of technical solutions and in which — vice versa — technical developments can also be applied in institutional interventions and governance with ethical, societal, juridical and economical goals. Innovative solutions to global problems also offer corporate partners, entrepreneurs and start-ups interesting opportunities. The research therefore aligns well with the strategic research agendas of the departments of the Dutch government, the missions of a variety of international organisations in The Hague, as well as with research activities of the six Dutch universities which are active in the city.
