SSH researchers might be interested to hear about a workshop organised by the University of Bologna which aims to rethink the role of SSH in Horizon 2020. Evaluations of the first year of the Horizon 2020 have criticised the lack of scope for the inclusion of SSH and the lack of clarity on what the European Commission is actually looking for from SSH participation in Societal Challenges projects.

This workshop, hosted by the Emilia-Romagna Region – EU Liaison Office in Brussels on 26th February, will discuss the contribution of SSH and the impact it can make. The workshop is aimed at the academic community, policymakers and civil society. There will be parallel panel discussions on six themes: social innovation; ICT and social inclusion; culture and creativity; health, care and education; public policies, work and welfare. Northumbria’s own Professor Irene Hardhill will be one of the keynote speakers, addressing the impact of SSH in Horizon 2020.

Take a look at the workshop website for the further details and the registration form. Registration opens on the 16th January.
