The 'Societal Challenges' are a significant pillar of the EU's Horizon 2020 research and innovation funding programme. The funding is aimed at large international consortia seeking to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing society within pre-identified topics and calls. Societal Challenge 6 is 'Europe in a changing world - Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies' and is the challenge area that has the highest number of opportunities for social science, arts and humanities researchers, with EUR 178 million available for calls closing in March 2020. The UK can still be a part of, and lead, these consortia, even in the event of a No-Deal – please come along for more information!
This session will introduce the 2020 calls within the Societal Challenge 6 topic areas as well as presentations from successful H2020 grant holders and an H2020 evaluator. In addition, we will discuss EU Exit and how this would affect Societal Challenge 6, and there will be the opportunity for a Q&A session with the UK’s Legal and Financial NCP.
We will also be detailing how to find opportunities for social science, arts and humanities researchers from across the rest of the Horizon 2020 programme, including a presentation from UKRO on upcoming European Research Council (ERC) opportunities.
