Europe in a changing world – inclusive, innovative and reflective societies

The European Commission has recently announced the latest Horizon 2020 work programme and I wanted to draw your attention to a particular strand of calls that should be of interest to academics in the social sciences and humanities. Often seen as the poor cousins in funding and especially some of the European streams this latest call provides an opportunity to develop exciting partnerships and proposals that address some of the biggest challenges facing Europe at this time.

There are four themes that will be of particular interest. Full details will be released along with detailed calls on 26 October but preliminary information can be found on the commission website for the following streams:

REVERSING INEQUALITIES AND PROMOTING FAIRNESS

ENGAGING TOGETHER GLOBALLY

CO-CREATION FOR GROWTH AND INCLUSION

UNDERSTANDING EUROPE – PROMOTING THE EUROPEAN PUBLIC AND CULTURAL SPACE

It is worth exploring the sub-themes on each page and making a note of priorities and any additional information. If you are interested in exploring a proposal then now is the time to start talking to potential partners and your university research support team.
