Recent disruptions caused by the digital age and increasing calls for Responsible Research and Innovation have overturned supposed certainties of how to assess research and innovation. This paper shows that: (1) Responsible Research and Innovation requires a system approach; and (2) digital transformation brings additional complications and opportunities. Particularly, privacy issues as well as the risk of discrimination and manipulation severely increase in the digital age. Simultaneously, big data and internet of things solutions offer multiple opportunities of following research and innovation processes more closely, thereby offering chances to sufficiently integrate the values of all stakeholders.
