Institute of Responsible Innovation (IRI-HSG)


The Institute of Responsible Innovation at the University of St.Gallen is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to responsible innovation, social entrepreneurship, and grand challenges.

We contribute to solving responsibly wicked problems related to innovation and entrepreneurship for a better future for humanity. We do this by engaging in research, teaching, and practice that are responsible not only for different stakeholder groups today, but also for the future generations to come.
We take the principles of responsible innovation as (1) leveraging scientific research and technological development for humanity and (2) in doing so, taking into account the social, ethical, cultural, and economic impact of innovation.
