Integration of Social Sciences and Humanities in Horizon 2020: Participants, budget and disciplines

2nd Monitoring report on SSH-flagged projects funded in 2015 under the Societal Challenges and Industrial Leadership priorities

To truly integrate Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities in Horizon 2020 is essential in order to ensure that the programme delivers on its high ambitions.

Regularly monitoring reports are published to track the development of SSH Integration in the Industrial leadership and Societal challenges pillars of Horizon 2020.

Overall the results show a slight improvement compared with the 1st report based on 2014 figures.

Together these two reports cover the work programme of 2014-15 which means that the monitoring of results is still in an early phase of the programme.

Integration of SSH in H2020

Integration of Social Sciences and Humanities in Horizon 2020: participants, budget and disciplines

One of the novelties of the Horizon 2020 programme is the systematic and strategic integration (“embedding”) of the social sciences and humanities into each of the priorities of Horizon 2020. Contributions from these disciplines are needed to generate new knowledge, support evidence-based policy-making, develop key competences and produce interdisciplinary solutions to both societal and technological issues.

The broad integration of the SSH within the Societal Challenges and Industrial Leadership priorities is an exercise that provides both opportunities and challenges. It provides opportunities by creating more scope for SSH contributions under more thematic areas and more topics than before. It also creates new challenges since this new approach differs significantly from previous Framework Programmes and necessitates a change of mind towards more interdisciplinarity. Integrating the SSH thus requires cross-disciplinary cooperation on the part of the research community but also new ways to formulate the topics.

This monitoring and evaluation report assesses in a thorough and detailed manner how the different SSH disciplines have been integrated into the projects funded in 2014 under the Societal Challenges and the Industrial Leadership priorities. The report illustrates the overall success of the new policy on the integration of SSH as a cross-cutting issue. It also points out where further efforts are needed.

The report will be published on an annual basis, with the next version to be released in summer 2016 and focusing on the results of the 2015 calls for proposals.
