  9. 9. Societal Challenges (*Partial General Approach) Rationale and Approach 1. Health, demographic change and wellbeing 2. European bioeconomy challenges: food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research 3. Secure clean and efficient energy 4. Smart, green and integrated transport 5. Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials 6. Europe in a changing world – inclusive, innovative and reflective societies 7. Secure societies – protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens  Concerns of citizens and society/EU policy objectives  Breakthrough solutions come from multi-disciplinary collaborations, including social-sciences and humanities  Addressing challenges requires full research innovation cycle, from research to market  Focus on policy priorities without predetermining technologies or types of solutions to be developed  Integrated approaches to ICT and SSH
