The European Green Deal and Social Sciences and Humanities

The opening of the call for proposals in the special Horizon 2020 call dedicated to the European Green Deal is expected in the second half of September 2020. As it was written on PolSCA website – on the occasion of the announcement of the call in June (link) – its purpose is primarily to support fair and sustainable social transformation through research. In addition to technological development and demonstration projects the EU Green Deal call (GDC) is aimed at development of new ways to engage civil society and empowerment of citizens in the ‘green’ transition, and should therefore be of interest to social sciences and humanities researchers. In the light of this, we encourage you to read the short description of selected Green Deal Call topics and the expected results to be achieved by the projects financed under H2020. We also inform about events related to the GDC, including dedicated brokerage meetings organized by Net4Society or The Enterprise Europe Network, as well as about special sessions during EU Research and Innovation Days, which will take place online on 22-24 September 2020.
