Abstract: The implementation of policies that directly promote carbonneutrality is considered a key factor for combating climate change. The testing of the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation at the scale of communities remains limited. Thus, we first investigate the degree to which RRI is embedded in local communities. Second, we explore the question of how RRI promotes responsible innovation using a multi-stakeholder perspective. This research deploys a mixed-methods research design focusing on the municipality of Thalwil in Switzerland. Our method corresponds to the quadruple helix of innovation, involving actors from business, politics/administration, academic institutions and civil society. Data is derived from 20 semi-structured stakeholder interviews, a focus group discussion with 15 stakeholders, a stakeholder workshop with 25 stakeholders and complemented by a document analysis and a social network analysis. Findings are assessed using transcription and coding methods as well as semiquantitative networks.
