1 1 2012 Calls for proposals Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) Challenge Social Innovation Vienna, 21 September 2011 Domenico ROSSETTI European Commission, DG Research and Innovation

2 2 EU research and innovation Turning the eyes Most of the efforts these last 30 years in R&D were directly linked to industrial policies. In Europe: In the eighties, the eyes were turned towards Japan: technology push (cf. “Framework Programme”) In 2000, the eyes were turned towards USA: competitiveness push (cf. Lisbon Strategy) Today: importance of information technologies, sustainability, social innovation and demand-pull measures – Europe 2020 strategy

3 3 European research and innovation A key EU policy Research and Innovation: Third EU policy in budgetary terms (after CAP and Structural funds including more and more RTD&I) FP7: Major instrument for intensification of EU research collaboration Research and Innovation as a major instrument to recover the crisis effects

4 4 Role of research and innovation (“3% GDP target”) Source: EU DEMETER project using the NEMESIS model (P. Zagamé)

5 5 Towards Horizon 2020 Lund Declaration (2009): Focus on the EU Grand challenges Innovation Union (2010): Research and innovation are placed at the heart of the Europe 2020 strategy Green Paper Towards a CSF for EU Research and Innovation funding (2011) - major changes to:  Make participation easier  Increase scientific and economic impact  Provide better value for money

6 6

7 7 Horizon 2020 Multiannual financial framework (2011) – « A Budget for Europe 2020 » Three areas for R&I  Excellence in the science base  Tackling societal challenges  Industrial leadership and competitiveness

8 8 Consultation on the Challenge Inclusive, innovative and secure societies In addition to the results of the CSF consultation:  A workshop with the stakeholders on 27 June 2011  A workshop with the Member States and Associates States on 13 July 2011 Slides and synthetic report of the workshops available at: en.cfm

9 9 EU research in SSH: Objectives Knowing: Data, statistics, indicators Explaining: Tools, definitions, methods Understanding: Context, causes, mechanisms Forward looking: Modelling, foresight, scenario Recommending: From knowledge to policy

10 10 EU research in in SSH: Facts and opportunities The biggest world R&D programme in SSH (€ 600 M in FP7): Problem-oriented and policy-relevant. Almost 350 projects and 3000 research organisations involved between 2002 and 2010 The European Research Council (ERC) for the best individuals in SSH The Marie Curie for the mobility of SSH researchers Some opportunities in the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme and in the Structural Funds

11 11 SSH - What we expect? ● High scientific quality (excellence) ● EU added value (dimension, coverage, comparison) ● Different socio-economic and humanity disciplines ● Quantitative and qualitative methods ● Support to EU policies ● Stock-taking (past research)

12 12 Stock-taking

13 13 SSH - What we expect? ● Forward looking (foresight and forecast) ● International cooperation (globalisation of R&D and innovation) ● Exploitation of results (science, policy, social partners, CSO) ● Critical mass of actors (stakeholders) ● Professional management ● Ethics and gender aspects

14 14 Forward-looking
