Abstract: In this article we introduce the concept of responsible innovation into entrepreneurship research, present ideas on how to operationalise it, and share notions on operational issues from the debate on advanced biotechnology and the bio-economy. Therefore, we first examine the role of entrepreneurship as an agent of innovation and connect it to responsible innovation. Second, introducing the 'prism of responsible innovation' as a moderator for the entrepreneurial process in converting opportunity into innovation, we propose a theoretical framework of how the concept of responsible innovation could be integrated into the entrepreneurial process. Finally, we present insight from the debate on advanced biotechnologies regarding potential operationalisation strategies for responsible innovation.
