This report presents the main findings and outcomes from the critical evaluation of the ETHNA System implementation process. The ETHNA System, a flexible ethics governance system, has been experimentally implemented in six organisations from four different Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) contexts (higher education, research funder, innovation ecosystem, research centre).

The report presents the most common barriers and drivers of implementation, highlights some of the good practices that have emerged from the process, and outlines the necessary conditions required to support and implement the ethics governance system.
