Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in Higher Education (HE) Practice

RRI as a Tool for Research, Reflection, and Curricula Innovation






Our special issue provides insights into how the principles of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) can fertilise our educational practices in business and management higher education. The articles in the issue analyse teaching practices from various fields of business and management through the lenses of RRI and take us to Bachelor’s, Master’s and MBA levels of HE. As an introduction to this set of conceptual and research articles, we are providing a brief overview of RRI and a conceptual framework of pedagogical approaches as well as a comparative outline of the articles.
