This paper aims to contribute to the ongoing conceptual debate on responsible innovation,
and provides innovation practices and processes that can help to implement responsible innovation
in the business context. Based on a systematic literature review of 72 empirical scholarly articles,
it was possible to identify, analyse and synthesise empirical findings reported in studies on social,
sustainable and responsible innovation practices in the business context. The synthesis of the
included articles resulted in a refined framework for responsible innovation in the business context.
This framework includes an overview of innovation practices and processes that can enhance the
dimensions of responsible innovation: anticipation, reflexivity, inclusion, deliberation, responsiveness
and knowledge management. Additionally, knowledge gaps are identified and a research agenda
for responsible innovation is proposed. This review can therefore serve as a next step in the
theoretical and practical development of responsible innovation in general, and in the business
context in particular.
