Preparing for Horizon Europe: How to embed Social Sciences and Humanities in technical energy project proposals

Energy-SHIFTS, Energy Social sciences & Humanities Innovation Forum Targeting the SET-Plan, is organising a series of virtual masterclasses to synthesize the project’s main findings and foster the implementation of the SET-Plan.

Specifically, this Energy-SHIFTS Masterclass for energy technologists will focus on showcasing different stakeholder perspectives on what Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) can offer more technically-oriented energy projects. There will be dedicated recommendations for how to ‘mainstream’ (as per H2020 and Horizon Europe EC commitments) SSH into such Horizon Europe energy proposals. Participants will also have the opportunity of applying these recommendations and speaker insights, through a dedicated breakout group session that looks at how SSH could practically be used in responding to a funding call.

The event promises a fantastic range of speakers, including senior representatives from DG ENER, DG RTD, INEA, EERA, and others.

Please register your interest in the event by filling in this short form before Tuesday 10 November 2020 (1300 UK time).

The preliminary agenda is available HERE. Additional information and reading materials will be provided in due time ahead of the event.
