During the past decade, "responsible research and innovation" (RRI) has gained prominence as an approach to governing the future course of emerging technologies. To a great degree, RRI has acted as a central pillar in the European research policy. Even though the concept has - at least in part - emerged as a response to public concerns about the safety of nanotechnology, it is still worth investigating what "responsibility" means in the context of nanotech innovations.
