EU want to hear your ideas for future Horizon 2020 calls!

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and the British Academy, will be inputting suggestions to the Commission to inform these discussions with the Advisory Groups and would like to be informed by views from within the UK research community. In order to achieve these, we are inviting you to submit your ideas for these areas should be. 

As the social sciences and humanities are to be embedded across all the Societal Challenges, we are inviting ideas covering all the thematic areas of these calls:

  • Challenge 2: Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research, and the Bioeconomy;
  • Challenge 3: Secure, clean and efficient energy;

  • Challenge 5: Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials;
  • Challenge 6: Europe in a changing world – inclusive, innovative and reflective societies;
