Observing and Negating Matthew Effects in Responsible Research and Innovation Transition

Project description

Moving beyond the Matthew effect in research

The idea that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer is a social phenomenon linked to the Matthew effect. Essentially, it refers to the concept that those who already have status can gain more, whereas those without status struggle more to gain it. In other words, it is the accumulated advantage. The EU-funded ON-MERRIT project will investigate this concept in terms of responsible research and innovation (RRI). Specifically, it will examine whether open processes are enough to drive participation or whether this also requires capacity in terms of knowledge, skills, motivation and technological readiness. The results will assist in improving policies and creating indicators and incentives.
