10 WHERE? Societal Challenge 6 'EUROPE IN A CHANGING WORLD - INCLUSIVE, INNOVATIVE AND REFLECTIVE SOCIETIES' 'Mainstreaming' SSH across all Horizon 2020 objectives SSH in the 'Excellent Science'-Pillar

11 Societal Challenge 6 'EUROPE IN A CHANGING WORLD - INCLUSIVE, INNOVATIVE AND REFLECTIVE SOCIETIES' [pre-final; based on Council PGA] Inclusive Societies: The mechanisms to promote smart, sustainable and inclusive growth Trusted organisations, practices, services and policies that are necessary to build resilient, inclusive, participatory, open and creative societies in Europe Europe's role as a global actor notably regarding human rights and global justice The processes and practices to close the research and innovation divide in Europe The promotion of sustainable and inclusive environments through innovative spatial and urban planning and design Innovative societies: Strengthening the evidence-base and support for the IU and ERA Explore new forms of innovation, with special emphasis on social innovation and creativity Make use of the innovative, creative and productive potential of all generations Ensure societal engagement in research and innovation Promote coherent and effective cooperation with third countries

12 Societal Challenge 6 'EUROPE IN A CHANGING WORLD - INCLUSIVE, INNOVATIVE AND REFLECTIVE SOCIETIES' [pre-final; based on Council PGA] Reflective societies – cultural heritage and European identity: Study European heritage, memory, identity, integration and cultural interaction and translation, including its representations in cultural and scientific collections, archives and museums Research into European countries’ and regions’ history, literature, art, philosophy and religions and how these have informed contemporary European diversity Research on Europe's role in the world, on the mutual influence and ties between the world regions, and a view from outside on European cultures

13 'Mainstreaming' SSH across all Horizon 2020 objectives: Cross-cutting issues and support measures in Horizon 2020 "Social sciences and humanities Social sciences and humanities research will be fully integrated into each of the pillars of Horizon 2020 and each of the specific objectives. In relation to the societal challenges, social sciences and humanities are mainstreamed as an essential element of the activities needed to tackle each of the societal challenges to enhance their impact. The specific objective of the societal challenge 'Europe in a changing world: Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies' will support social sciences and humanities research by focusing on inclusive, innovative and reflective societies."

14 'Mainstreaming' SSH across all Horizon 2020 objectives': Examples in terms of themes in 'Societal Challenges' 1) Health-Challenge: - analyses of the reform of public health systems; - research on the evolution of health inequalities and of their interplay with other economic and social inequalities; - effectiveness of policies to reduce inequalities 2) Transport-Challenge: - analyse socio-economic aspects of transport, prospective studies and technology foresight; - understand user behaviour, social acceptance, and the impact of policy measures 3) Climate Action-Challenge: - research on cultural, behavioural, socio-economic and institutional change needed to move to a more self-reliant and resource efficient economy; - develop robust indicators to assess the transition towards a green economy and policy measures

15 'Mainstreaming' SSH across all Horizon 2020 objectives': Examples of possible practical implementation - use forward-looking exercises to identify interdisciplinarity themes - consultation: SSH researchers will need to be involved in the early stages of defining the work programmes; interdisciplinary composition of the External Advisory Group(s) - evaluation of calls for proposals: interdisciplinary panels - a regular review of the implementation of interdisciplinarity in each Societal Challenge should also be organised during the lifetime of Horizon 2020

16 SSH in Horizon 2020: 'Excellent Science'
European Research Council: 17% of the ERC budget is planned to be invested in SSH 'curiosity-driven' research, i.e. approx. 2 bill. Euro; under FP7 the ERC already funds SSH projects of more than 1 bill. Euro Marie Curie Actions: under FP7, more than 10% of MC Actions are devoted to SSH researchers Research Infrastructures: under FP7, already a number of SSH research infrastructures are being supported, e.g. the European Social Survey (ESS) and CLARIN – Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure – with an EU contribution of 5 mio. Euro
