The subject of the meeting is the Horizon Europe Cluster 2 “Culture, creativity and inclusive society”. This cluster aims to strengthen European democratic values, including rule of law and fundamental rights, safeguarding our cultural heritage, and promoting socio-economic transformations that contribute to inclusion and growth. 

During the session, we will focus on incentives, opportunities and challenges related to the application and participation of social sciences and humanities representatives in Horizon Europe, especially in Cluster 2 competitions (deadline for application April 20, 2022).

We will be supported by an expert of the National Contact Point, and representatives of, among others, Division I of the Polish Academy of Sciences will present good practices in international projects carried out in previous years.

We will end with a session of questions and a discussion on practical solutions supporting researchers in the social sciences and humanities in Horizon Europe, incl. creating and joining project consortia or searching for projects in other Horizon Europe clusters, in which social sciences and humanities work packages are planned.

The event is intended only for academics and research managers of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The webinar for PAN employees will be preceded by two days of events organized by the European Commission and dedicated to Cluster 2: InfoDay on 7.12. and brokerage event on 8.12

We encourage you to participate in the entire “three-pack” on Cluster 2.

The main objective of the activities undertaken as part of the PolSCA Webinar series is to strengthen the knowledge of the EU framework programme for research and innovation – Horizon Europe (HE) among representatives of the scientific community of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAS). The participation in Horizon Europe (2021-2027) will undoubtedly be a great challenge for scientists and research units in Poland, including employees of the PAS Institutes. Yet, Horizon Europe programme, with a budget of EUR 95.5 billion, clearly provides a great opportunity to implement ambitious R&D projects, largely based on multilateral scientific cooperation.

The synergy of various activities initiated within the PASIFIC programme under the PAS headquarters, combined with dissemination and training activities undertaken by the PolSCA Office in accordance with its mission shall contribute to increasing the effective participation of the research institutes of the PAS in projects funded under Horizon Europe. To further enable that, PolSCA is involved in building and strengthening an informal support network dedicated to scientists and research managers of PAS institutes in the context of the EU framework program for research and innovation, with an emphasis on Horizon Europe

PolSCA initiated the roll-out of these webinars in the first half of the 2021. The kick-off meeting included the general introduction to Horizon Europe and a national support system. This was followed by a general introduction to the HE pillar II, including strategic planning, missions and partnerships. In the second half of 2021, a number of follow-up webinars are being delivered by PolSCA team ranging from a detailed overview of selected clusters, to various HE instruments (e.g. Widening measures, Cluster 6 of HE ).
