Horizon 2020 has landed – the new world of European Commission Funding

Leave a comment

Horizon 2020 'logo' Horizon 2020 was launched late last year and covers the next 7 years of European Commission Funding (2014-2020).   We will be covering some of the opportunities for Arts and Humanities Researchers over the next couple of weeks and the support available.

The first funding opportunities were published in December. As a starting point, for thematic funding there are some interesting opportunities in Societal Challenge 6 ‘Europe in a Changing World – Inclusive, Innovative and Reflective Societies’. Topics we have identified with substantial humanities research potential are:

Emmergence and transmission of European Cultural heritage and Europeanisation

The cultural heritage of war in contemporary Europe

Cultural opposition in the former socialist countries

European cohesion, regional and urban policies and the perceptions of Europe

Advanced 3D modeeling for accessing and understanding European cultural assets

If you want to know more about any of the topics above you can contact the UK National Contact Point Laura Mora Diaz. Laura is based at ESRC but covers the whole remit of Challenge 6. She is setting up an email list for anyone who wants to receive updates about Challenge 6 and other social science and humanities opportunities so please email her directly if you would like to be added.  There are also several events covering challenge 6 and other aspects of Horizon 2020. The next one is 7th February in Cardiff.

Please note that topics, dates and budgets related to 2015 deadlines are provided on an indicative basis only at this stage. The Commission aim is to publish the updated 2015 Work Programme in July 2014.
