The development of information and communication technologies (ICT) introduces radical changes in our lives. They provide answers to a multitude of people needs, but at the same time they increase the concerns about their actual threats and societal impacts. This calls for adopting a responsible research and innovation perspective in the process of developing ICT solutions.

It intends to introduce the idea of responsible Research and Innovation in digital technologies ensuring that ICT research corresponds to societal needs.
