Horizon 2020 Science With and For Society

7th January 2019

13 new call topics under the Horizon 2020 Science With and For Society programme are now accepting proposals for research examining the intersection of social policy and science research.

The Science With and For Society (SwafS) programme aims to address the European societal challenges of Horizon 2020, through both building capacities and developing innovative ways of connecting science to society. It will make science more attractive, especially to young people, increase society’s appetite for innovation, and open up further research and innovation activities.

The focus of Science with and for Society for 2018-20 is on the following five core strategic orientations:

1.    Accelerating and catalysing processes of institutional change.

2.    Stepping up the support to Gender Equality in Research & Innovation policy.

3.    Building the territorial dimension of SwafS partnerships.

4.    Exploring and supporting citizen science.

5.    Building the knowledge base for SwafS.

Each strategic orientation, as appropriate, takes into account all SwafS lines of activity: public engagement, science education (formal, informal and non-formal), gender equality, ethics/research integrity, open access/data, and governance, scientific careers, due and proportional precaution, and science communication.

The following 13 new Call Topics have now opened as part of this programme:
