EPA H2020 SC5 Info Day: Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials - Laura Burke, EPA

  1. 1. Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials Advisory Group Report Programming period 2018 – 2020 H2020, SC5 Laura Burke
  2. 2. Advisory Group Diverse expertise 3 AG Meetings Report Role: identify future strategic research and innovation (R&I) priorities for the Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 5.
  3. 3. Approach Consistent and consolidated advice Strong, systemic approach for impact Focus on strategic priorities Analytical rigour Co-design in R&I Redefinition of value Value chain approach Stronger integration of social sciences and humanities Strong dimension of international cooperation Innovation for competitiveness No one-size fits all solution Sequential and logical approach
  4. 4. Question 1: Challenges and integrated approach 1. Climate Action after COP21 2. Circular Economy 3. Innovative and resilient cities and rural areas 4. The water-food-and- energy nexus 5. Enabling systemic transformation  Integrated approach across other challenges & design for complementarity  The Advisory Group also highlighted that the five priority areas identified do not follow a linear logic or identify comparable categories of R&I. Instead they have been chosen to represent a matrix of actionable priorities. Raw materials and Earth Observation have been identified by the Advisory Group as important cross cutting issues and are incorporated across the five Strategic Priorities.
  5. 5. Question 2: Output/impact Economic Environmental Social OutcomeOutput
  6. 6. Question 3: Gaps and potential game changers  Creating enabling conditions for transformative change  Innovation coupled with societal engagement and acceptance  Sustainable lifestyles, behaviour, cultural dynamics  Expansion of knowledge base  More deployment and scaling up of technical and socio-economic solutions  Better monitoring and analysis of transformation
  7. 7. Question 4: Horizontal aspects  Combined effects due to climate, environment and health;  Biodiversity aspects as agreed in the Aichi targets;  Global migration streams and demographic change;  Raw materials as a cross-cutting priority;  Impact of geopolitics on climate change, population change and resources;  Role and potential of cultural heritage;  Monitoring of progress and impact in innovation;  Systemic and integrated policy making;  ICT as a cross-cutting component and enabling agent;  Promotion of sustainable lifestyles; and  Redefining economic value to incorporate the contribution of social and natural capital.
  8. 8. Question 5: Emerging priorities Knowledge Interdependencies of systems Innovation for the market Climate finance Indicators Transformation and scale up Methods of co-design for R&I Framework and tools Governance, engagement strategies and tools Mechanisms to scale up innovation Risk mitigation Consideration of social inclusion, equity and migration challenges Fragmentation in the EU
  9. 9. Strategic Priorities
  10. 10. SP1: Climate action after COP21  Diversification of data collection  Development of next generation climate models  Multi-sectorial impact analysis  Responsive model for low- carbon pathways  Integration of social and behavioural action and responses to climate action and services  Communication and outreach The objective here is to strengthen the knowledge base for solution-oriented climate action in the policy, technological and social spheres. R&I actions under this priority should integrate the wide range of ongoing Earth Observation activities through well-established climate services and contribute to the definition of the future generation of the EU Copernicus programme and related activities. Further, the aim is to implement these innovation findings in a social and ecological context, integrating behavioural change aspects and considering the implications for equity.
  11. 11. SP2: Circular economy  Defining new values  Co-designing an industrial innovation strategy and policy framework  Design and technology  Awareness, participation and demand  Big data, analytics and visualisation of data  Demonstration projects This priority aims to further support, develop and realise the levers for a circular economy – both for the bio-cycle and technical cycle. • Regenerate (renewable energy and raw materials) • Share and optimise (prevention, waste reduction) • Loop (improved recycling technologies, digitalise) • Exchange (breakthrough technologies).
  12. 12. SP3: Resilient and innovative cities and rural areas  Integrated planning for resilient cities and rural areas  Innovation and smart infrastructure  Finance  SolutionsThis priority on cities and rural has been chosen to allow for focus on a territorial dimension for action. Innovation and holistic resilience are key to this priority.
  13. 13. SP4: The water-food-and energy nexus  Migration of species and loss of species through changes in climate  Integrated approaches towards management of food, water and energy resources  Large scale demonstration projects  Technological and systems solutions  Valuation of water-food- energy sources Water, food and energy are by nature interconnected and one of the key societal challenges. This priority aims to contribute towards security in all three spheres in the context of overall sustainable resource use by looking at them as an integrated whole – both resources at environment, land and sea.
  14. 14. SP5: Enabling systemic transformation  Approaches and tools for systemic policy making  Governance structures  Processes and tools to manage complex systems  Technological solutions  Re-defining value and risk assessments  Education and culture  Behavioural response  Measuring, monitoring transformation Enabling systemic transformation describes the range of institutional, social and cultural systems and innovations necessary to accompany and manage change and transition in a responsive and equitable manner.
  15. 15. Next Steps……….  Draft Strategic Programme Overarching Document  Recognises Advisory Group input  Strategic Orientation  Climate Action, Innovating cities, Circular economy, Water, Raw materials, protecting natural and cultural assets  Environment in number of areas- health, food security, energy, transport  Focus Areas  Low carbon, climate resilient Europe  Circular economy  Supporting the Security Union  Further meeting of Advisory Group Chairs?  Maximise the potential synergies between different parts of H2020  Further articulate the strategic directions for 2018- 2020
