After the negotiators have come to a final deal on the budget of #HorizonEurope, we can look at the programme and its different aspects.

So what’s in for #SocialSciences and #Humanities?
In fact, #SocialSciences & #Humanities are prominently featured in the regulation, which will be the political and legal foundation of #HorizonEU…
Art 4 of #HorizonEU regulation on the general structure states:

"#SocialSciences and #Humanities (#SSH) shall play an important role across all clusters”

There will be Clusters on Health, Society, Security, Digital, Climate/Energy/Mobility & Food/Agri/Env
#SocialSciences & #Humanities are also mentioned in Art 6 on the fundamental principles of #HorizonEU, Art 7 governing the Missions, Art 44 on external experts and Art 45 on monitoring and reporting as well as in the Key Impact Pathway Indicators in the Annex
What about budget?

Final negotiations resulted in additional budget for Cluster 2 “Inclusive and Creative Society”. It will have the biggest budget ever in this area:

2,280 billion Euro

It will fund research in 3 big areas:
#Democracy, #CulturalHeritage #SocialTransformations
More info on budget negotiations in this informative article:…
So, #HorizonEU Cluster 2 will give many #SocialSciences & #Humanities scholars, researchers and innovators ample opportunity to look into applied questions of #Democracies, Europe’s #CulturalHeritage and #CreativeIndustries as well as societal transformations of European society
When looking at #SSHintegration (a concept to include Social Sciences & Humanities expertise across #HorizonEU) we can expect more than from #Horizon2020.

Upcoming Calls will see a lot of demand for expertise on societal, cultural, behavioural, economic aspects across Clusters
A key to success will be monitoring #SSHintegration and its implementation in #horizonEU

The monitoring reports by @EUScienceInnov will remain an important source

Here you can find the latest from 2018:…
What are open question on #SocialSciences & #Humanities in #HorizonEU?

We don't have a concrete picture on #SSH expertise in #Missions

We need to discuss the role of SSH in the #EIC the European Innovation Council including #SocialInnovation and in the big European Partnerships
My conclusion:

#Horizon Europe will be asking for #SocialSciences & #Humanities expertise in many areas 👍

It will be the job of all of us in EU & national research policy + in the research community itself to connect the right minds, researchers, innovators and companies
