Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials - Work Programme 2016-2017 preparation

How the two-year work programme for Societal Challenge 5 on Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials is being shaped.

The two-year work programme takes into account the political priorities of the Union and foresight exercises. Consultation of stakeholders was an integral part of the programming process. In this respect this challenge considered particularly the following inputs:

  • Advisory Group: report on 'Solutions-oriented research and innovation agenda for Horizon 2020' (April 2014) and input on strategic orientations for 2016-2017 (June 2014).
  • Targeted consultation of stakeholders: The stakeholder consultation held in summer 2014 closed on 23 June 2014) received 139 contributions from European and international stakeholders, including academic institutions and associations, industry representatives and associations, JPIs, ERA-NETs and other European networks, regional and local authorities, national agencies, a standardisation body, several FP7 projects, and a number of individual respondents.
    Respondents welcomed the opportunity to contribute to this strategic programming consultation. Running through the diversity of the contributions there was a clear consensus about the need to implement systemic and interdisciplinary solution – oriented approaches, with participation and engagement of stakeholders (i.e. academia, industry, financing bodies, local authorities, final users, CSOs, citizens). Further details on the results of the consultation are available in the short analysis of the contributions.
