Embedding Social Science and Humanities across Horizon 2020

ESRC

Following the release of the 2018-20 Work Programmes for Horizon 2020, a series of information days discussing Societal Challenge Six: Europe in a changing world, as well as wider research funding opportunities for social sciences and humanities available in Horizon 2020 over this period, will be held around the UK this autumn.

The Scottish event takes place at the University of Edinburgh on the 23 November 2017.

Horizon 2020 aims at fully integrating Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in each of its pillars and specific objectives. In particular there are a number of opportunities within the societal challenges pillar where, in addition to the challenge ‘Europe in a changing world - inclusive, innovative and reflective societies’, SSH will be embedded across all challenges in the form of multidisciplinary, challenge focussed research. The societal challenges are listed below:

  • Health, demographic change and wellbeing
  • Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine, maritime and inland water research, and the bio-economy
  • Secure, clean and efficient energy
  • Smart, green and integrated transport
  • Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials
  • Europe in a changing world - inclusive, innovative and reflective societies
  • Secure societies - protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens.

Specific calls with opportunities for social sciences and humanities research can be found in the Net4society document Opportunities for researchers from the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH).
