2. If I am interested in social innovation, employment, social protection and social entrepreneurship where can I find any funding opportunities?

The 6th Challenge tackles the social issues such as employment and social innovation research which consists in: migration, integration and demographic change, human rights and global justice, the promotion of sustainable and inclusive environments through innovative spatial and urban planning and design, new forms of innovation, study European heritage, European countries’ and regions’ culture, research on Europe's role in the world

The Work Programme for the 2014-2015 period sets one Call for overcoming the crisis and its negative effects on society, and one Call related to the youth employment an inclusion.  For further information, please see the 6th SC Work Programme at the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/data/ref/h2020/wp/2014_2015/main/h2020-wp1415-societies_en.pdf

If you are interested in social issues such as social politics and employment but not related to scientific research, maybe you can find some funding opportunities within the EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI). The Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) programme is a financing instrument at EU level to promote a high level of quality and sustainable employment, guaranteeing adequate and decent social protection, combating social exclusion and poverty and improving working conditions.

 

EaSI is managed directly by the European Commission. It brings together three EU programmes managed separately between 2007 and 2013: PROGRESS, EURES and Progress Microfinance.

For further information, please visit the EaSI website: http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=1081

3. If I am interested in justice where can I find any funding opportunities?

With consideration to Horizon 2020, within the 6th Challenge there is a Call dedicated to the “Europe’s role as a global actor”, notably regarding human rights and global justice.

There are also other funding Programmes related to the justice theme:

- TheJustice Programme: the main aim of this Programme is to help create a truly European area of Justice, based on mutual trust. It will promote judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters, help train judges, prosecutors and other legal professionals, and support EU action to tackle drugs. The Justice Programme is the successor of three current funding programmes (Civil Justice, Criminal Justice and Drug Prevention and Information Programmes).

4. If I am a researcher interested in urban matters, where can I find funding opportunities? 

According to its mandate, Horizon 2020 ought to fund research activities about the “promotion of sustainable and inclusive environments through innovative spatial and urban planning and design”. It is important to monitor the next Calls which will be published in 2016.

Related to urban matters, there is a specific initiative within the 6°SC Work Programme, the ERA-NET on Smart Urban Futures, which is open to research funders, legal entities owning or managing public research and innovation programmes.

Another interesting opportunities for the researchers interested in the urban topics, is the joint programming initiative, Urban Europe (http://jpi-urbaneurope.eu/).The aim is to create attractive, sustainable and economically viable urban areas, in which European citizens, communities and their surroundings can thrive.

For more information regarding the Urban Dynamics please visit the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/research/social-sciences/pdf/sustainable-urban-dynamics_en.pdf

5. If I am a researcher interested in cultural heritage, where can I find funding opportunities? 

Cultural heritage is a cross-cutting issue in Horizon 2020, although there is an ad hocCall within the 6th Challenge Work Programme, entitled “REFLECTIVE SOCIETIES: Cultural Heritage and European Identities.”

Within this Work Programme there some aspects of the cultural heritage area which are tackle, in particular: the conservative aspect and the socio-economic and humanistic aspect.

You can find the other funding opportunities in addition to the 6th SC, that are presented below:

- NANOTECHNOLOGIES;

- ENERGY;

- SECURITY;

- RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURES.

Other funding opportunities are available under the Joint Programming Initiative, Cultural Heritage(http://www.jpi-culturalheritage.eu/2014/03/call-heritage-plus/).

6. If I am a researcher interested in socio-economic issues and I have an excellent project idea, which doesn’t fit with one of the topic in the Work Programme or I don’t want to apply for a collaborative project, where can I apply for funding opportunities?

If you are interested in socio-economic issues and you have an excellent project idea maybe you can find an opportunity in the European Research Council which supports frontier research, cross disciplinary proposals and pioneering ideas in new and emerging fields which introduce unconventional and innovative approaches. The ERC's mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields of research, on the basis of scientific excellence.

7. How can I build a suitable consortium for a project?

The first step for seeking partners or consortia adapt to your profile, is registering on the NET4SOCIETY (the SSH National Contact Points’ Network) partner search platform. In this way, if you are seeking for partners, it will be possible to find the most fitting profiles, while if you are interested in become a member of a consortium, the coordinators will be able to check your profile. The NET4SOCIETY partner search support is available at the following link: http://www.net4society.eu/public/pss.php

The second step is verifying the SSH projects, funded in FP7, finding the partners which were part of the consortia. The same organizations often participate in the future proposals so it is possible to contact them, trying to create synergies and collaborations.

8. How can I involve local authorities and policy makers in my project?

Local authorities and policy makers are very important stakeholders that should be involved in the process to validate the results of the research activities. Nonetheless they could encounter bureaucratic difficulties come beneficiaries, thus they could be involved as experts of Advisory Boards or invited in workshops and meeting organised by the project supporting them for the travel costs.

10. If I am interested in research related to government modernization and ICT-enabled public sector Innovation, where can I find funding opportunities?

The evolution of society and the financial crisis have created a deep need to modernize the public sector. In order to meet these new demands and increasing expectations, public administrations need to be transformed.

The 6° challenge offers some interesting opportunities related to this issue, the ICT-enabled public sector innovation in SC6 calls for proposals are the following:

 

- INSO (News Forms of Innovation): ICT-enabled open government (personalised, mobile public services, transparency) and Innovative mobile eGov apps;

- YOUNG (The Young Generation): Open participation;

- EURO (Overcoming the Crisis): Using emerging technologies in the public sector.

There are other e-Government research opportunities in the 7th SC,Secure societies – protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizensand in the ICT Work Programme under the topic,Advanced Cloud Infrastructures & Services.
