    8. 8. SSH as a cross-cutting issue 8 Policy Research and Innovation
    9. 9. Integration of SSH in Horizon 2020 • Supported through the 'Excellent Science' part of H2020 (ERC, Marie Skłodowska-Curie & Infrastructures) • Integrated in Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies (LEIT) where relevant • Integrated in each of the 7 Societal Challenges • SSH play a major role in the Societal Challenge 6: "Europe in a changing world – inclusive, innovative and reflective societies" Policy Research and Innovation
    10. 10. The role of SSH in excellent science • The European Research Council (ERC) is already a major funding source for curiosity driven frontier research. About 17 % of the ERC-budget will be allocated to SSH • Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MCA) give opportunities for greater mobility and network building. SSH share of 11-12 % • Several major research infrastructures in the SSH are supported by FP7/H2020 : CESSDA, DARIAH, CLARIN, ESS, SHARE Policy Research and Innovation
    11. 11. Integrating SSH: two approaches Embedded SSH: All Societal Challenges, LEIT and activities under Excellent Science are generally open to SSH contributions in all their lines of activity and thus favour 'embedding SSH' as genuine interdisciplinarity Dedicated to SSH: In some Societal Challenges and parts of LEIT it is delineated a specific SSH line of activity called 'the socio-economic dimension of…' Policy Research and Innovation
    12. 12. The role of SSH in industrial leadership • Strengthening the cultural and social aspects of innovation • SSH as a source of creativity in development of services and products • Societal aspects • Business and management models Policy Research and Innovation
    13. 13. The role of SSH in the Societal Challenges The Societal Challenges will bring together different technologies, sectors, scientific disciplines, social sciences and humanities, and innovation actors to find new solutions. Policy Research and Innovation
    14. 14. Integrating SSH - Features  Economic feasibility of the implementation, especially for the close-to-the market R&I actions  Social acceptability of the new technology/ product/ service (cf. ICT, nanotechnologies, nuclear)  Human behaviours (cf. obesity in Health, savings in Energy, alternative mobility in Transport)  Values (cf. cultural differences, ethnic issues, religious backgrounds)  Governance, policy and institutional aspects  Forward-looking dimension (cf. modelling, scenarios) 14 Policy Research and Innovation
    15. 15. Integrating SSH – Challenges  In technology-driven topics there is a tendency to refer to SSH aspects in only a marginal way ( SSH as add-on not as integral or driving part);  The aim to make the call texts more general and less prescriptive might be in conflict with the need to draft texts with the necessary level of detail and reference to relevant SSH research;  Cultural and practical barriers/academic incentive system: mono-disciplinarity of training, curricula, journals, faculty structures; Policy Research and Innovation
    16. 16. Methods of implementation  Horizon 2020 Groups (collegiality, policy & SSH interests)  Guidance notes on the composition of:    External Advisory Groups Peer review / evaluation panels Structure of the Calls and Work Programmes with "Scope" and "Expected impact" directly linked to socio-economic concerns   In WPs: topics with strong SSH-relevance are "flagged" SSH mapping - http://www.net4society.eu/public/ssh-opportunities.php  review of the implementation of interdisciplinarity in H2020 16 Policy Research and Innovation
