Topic: Mapping Member State research and innovation in climate change, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials SC5-19b-2015

Specific challenge: Better transnational cooperation and coordination of research and innovation policies, programmes and initiatives in the area of climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials within the EU is needed to enhance the impact of research and innovation and ensure a more efficient use of resources and R&I developments.

Trans-national cooperation between National Contact Points (NCPs) within this Societal Challenge should be facilitated with a view to identifying and sharing good practices and raising the general standard of support to programme applicants, taking into account the diversity of actors that make up the constituency of this Societal Challenge.

Innovative ways are required to link up all relevant actors, increase policy coherence and improve public awareness of EU research and innovation.

Scope: Enhancing European networks to facilitate dialogue among the relevant scientific communities, funding bodies and user communities in the EU throughout the duration of Horizon 2020. Proposals should enhance coordination and synergies, and avoid overlaps, between European and nationally or regionally funded research and innovation actions, and create links with related international programmes, as appropriate.

Proposals shall address the following issue:

Mapping Member State research and innovation in climate change, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials[1]: identifying baselines, trends, good practices, threats, opportunities and potential synergies between EU, national and regional programmes, over the entire duration of Horizon 2020, building on existing sources, studies and databases, including ERA-Watch.

Expected impact:

Evidence-based policy and appropriate, cost-effective management, planning and adaptation decisions by the public sector, businesses, industry and society through the provision and effective communication of trustworthy and timely science-based information. Enhanced impact of research and innovation activities through better identification of R&I priorities, improved coordination of EU and Member State research and innovation programmes and funded activities, and synergies with international research and innovation programmes. Evidence-based R&I policy-making at EU and national/ regional as well as international levels; knowledge-based support to business management decisions; synergy between international, EU, national and regional programmes; recommendations for European Semester.

Type of action: Coordination and support actions
