Social Sciences & Humanities Across the SC5 WP2016/17 – Paul Kilkenny

  1. 1. Social Sciences & Humanities across SC5 WP 2016/17 SC5 Information Day - 21st October 2015 Paul Kilkenny, European Programmes Manager NCP for SC6 – Europe in a changing world NCP for ERC – Social Sciences/Humanities
  2. 2. Remit of the Irish Research Council in Horizon 2020 “The Irish Research Council will play a particular role in supporting the AHSS community in addition to supporting and cultivating the broader community across all disciplines to engage in cross and interdisciplinary research..” P.14
  3. 3. Pillar (3) Societal Challenges Health & Well Being Food Security Sustainable Energy Green, integrated mobility Climate & Environment Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies Secure societies
  4. 4. Embedding SSH in Horizon2020 SSH flagged topics in 2014/2015 WPs (Commission)
  5. 5. High Level summary of SC5 Themes with SSH Relevance WP for SC5 – 2016/2017  The circular economy  Smart cities and communities  Blue growth  Nature based solutions for resilience  Raw materials  Sustainable food security  Climate services/market studies  Cultural heritage for sustainable growth  Adaptive re-use of cultural heritage
  6. 6. Cross-cutting calls in SC5 for SSH Call: ‘Smart Cities and Communities – with Nature Based Solutions’ Topic 1: Demonstrating nature-based solutions in cities Sub-topic 2017: Nature-based solutions for inclusive urban regeneration (including regeneration of deprived areas)  develop, deploy, test, demonstrate and upscale in the “front- runners” cities as 'living laboratories' innovative systemic and yet locally attuned nature-based solutions co-designed in a multi- stakeholder and participatory context and at district level for inclusive urban regeneration reduced crime and security costs, enhanced human health, wellbeing and social cohesion. The contribution of social sciences to the design and deployment of the solutions process is considered necessary;
  7. 7. Cross Cutting calls in SC5 for SSH Call: ‘Blue growth – demonstrating an ocean of opportunity’ Topic 3: Climate impacts on Arctic ecosystem, resources, new economic activities  Scope: Assess the impact of global warming on Arctic (natural and human) systems and their effect on availability/accessibility of resources and the growth of new economic activities, considering needs of local populations and the economic actors operating in this vulnerable region, in view of sustainable development. Actions should address key processes of change and develop appropriate adaptation and mitigation responses.
  8. 8. Cross Cutting calls in SC5 for SSH Call: ‘Raw Materials’ Topic 3: Raw Materials policy support actions (2016/2017)  Scope: Assess the impact of global warming on Arctic (natural and human) systems and their effect on availability/accessibility of resources and the growth of new economic activities, considering needs of local populations and the economic actors operating in this vulnerable region, in view of sustainable development. Actions should address key processes of change and develop appropriate adaptation and mitigation responses.
  9. 9. Opportunity for environmental sciences researchers and SSH in SC6 WP 16/17 Call: ‘Understanding Europe: Promoting the European Public and Cultural Space’ Topic 7: Cultural heritage of European coastal and maritime regions  Scope: The research will aim at providing a comprehensive framework for the preservation of European coastal and maritime cultural landscapes….The research - multidisciplinary to the extent required by its inherent and explicit research approach - might combine approaches and methodologies of cultural heritage preservation, social sciences and humanities, spatial and environmental sciences.

SIOR – Social Impact Open Repository » The SIOR initiative was born in the framework of the IMPACT-EV project (Evaluating the impact and outcomes of European Social Sciences and Humanities research), funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission » Within SIOR, researchers or research institutions describe the social impact of their scientific work. SIOR also allows researchers to link their social impacts to research institutions, funders, and ORCID researcher ID. » http://www.ub.edu/sior/sior.php
