H2020 SC5-SCC2-2016 - Innovative nature-based solutions for climate and water resilience in cities

  1. 1. EU Research Excellence and Capacity for Horizon 2020 Topic SCC-02-2016-2017 Innovative Nature Based Solutions In Cities Overview of Topic SCC-02-2016-2017 Innovative nature-based solutions in cities In the face of mass urbanisation, climate change mitigation and adaptation and the sustainable management of water resources are key challenges for cities in the 21st century. The H2020 topic SCC-02-2016-2017 invites proposals from consortia to develop, demonstrate and deploy innovative nature-based solutions for cities, which should be co-designed, co- developed and co-implemented in a trans-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder and participatory context. These solutions should be embedded in an integrated urban and land use planning as part of the intervention. Proposals should assess potential regulatory, economic, social and technical barriers; and develop methodologies for replication and up-scaling in different contexts. Methodology Stage 1: Mapping of research projects: The CORDIS database was searched using pre-selected keywords across the full suite of FP7 and Horizon 2020 programmes and relevant projects identified Stage 2: Mapping of key Institutes to receive water research funding: The research projects from Stage 1 were comprehensively searched to discern whether there was evidence of research institutes involved in multiple research projects. The top performing institutes involved in multiple projects were identified. Stage 3: Analysis of “networking” groups: A range of EU networking groups in the water research area were analysed as part of Stage 3 . Participants in networks which were also “top performing institutes” from Stage 2 were identified. Key findings Research Institutes which were involved in most FP7 and H2020 projects in subject areas relevant to Topic H2020-SCC-02-2016-2017 STICHTING DELTARES, The Netherlands LABORATORIO NACIONAL DE ENGENHARIA CIVIL, Portugal IWW RHEINISCH WESTFALISCHES INSTITUT FUR WASSERFORSCHUNG GEMEINNUTZIGE, Germany HR WALLINGFORD LIMITED, United Kingdom KWR WATER B.V., The Netherlands THE UNIVERSITY OF EXETER, United Kingdom HELMHOLTZ-ZENTRUM FUER UMWELTFORSCHUNG GMBH – UFZ, Germany MIDDLESEX UNIVERSITY HIGHER EDUCATION CORPORATION, United Kingdom STIFTELSEN SINTEF, Norway UNIVERSITAT POLITECNICA DE CATALUNYA, Spain WAGENINGEN UNIVERSITY, The Netherlands KØBENHAVNS UNIVERSITET, Denmark Who should participate in this SCC-02-2016-2017 call? • Environmental Science/Engineering – to address ecology, civil engineering, hydrology and soil science issues, etc. • Business Studies – to implement and test new business models • Social Sciences and Humanities - to facilitate participatory, community- based approaches • Political Sciences, Economics, and Governance – to address the relevant legal, societal and market challenges • Local, city and regional authorities, community groups • Industry partners/SMEs – engineering, ICT and communication Networks and Infrastructures in the area of SCC-02-2016-2017 • Wastewater Supply and Sanitation Technology Platform • Managing Hydroclimatic Extreme Events • Green Infrastructure • Ecosystem Services • European Innovation Platform on Water • NatureWAT - Nature-based technologies for innovation in water management (AG 228) • ESE - Ecosystem Services for Europe (AG052) • EXPEER - Distributed Infrastructure for EXPErimentation in Ecosystem Research This study has been conducted on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency by Author: Xavier Dubuisson Eng.
