EIT RawMaterials is the largest and strongest consortium in the raw materials sector worldwide. There are six regional Innovation Hubs in Belgium, Finland, France, Italy, Poland and Sweden, (formally called Co-Location Centres (CLCs)) that represent different regional ecosystems connecting more than 120 partners from industry, research and education coming from over 20 EU countries. The mission of EIT RawMaterials is to boost the competitiveness, growth and attractiveness of the European raw materials sector via radical innovation, new educational approaches and guided entrepreneurship. Take a look on this brochure and explore the different opportunities launched by the EIT RawMaterials that promote your networking capacity and boost Horizon 2020 proposals.
The integration of Social Sciences and Humanities research (SSH) in Horizon 2020 projects comes with great opportunities but also with certain challenges. For decades, the European research was mainly focused on the expertise of researchers specialised in life and physical sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Now, the Horizon 2020 policy looks further – it is based on a premise that integration of SSH aspects into European research is essential to generate new knowledge and produce interdisciplinary and innovative solutions to both societal and technological issues.
The 2nd JPI Oceans conference took place in Lisbon on 26 October 2017 and presented the first results of the actions and projects initiated under the framework of JPI Oceans. The event provided an excellent opportunity for stakeholders from research and industry to network and discuss with policy makers from across Europe.
Partners involved in the JPI Oceans joint actions discussed the outcomes, opportunities and future outlooks of their activities.
In the first session were introduced next joint actions: Ecological aspects of deep sea mining (Minigimpact project), Munitions in the Sea, Marine calibration network, MarTERA ERA-NET Cofund on marine and maritime technologies and ERA-NET Cofund on blue bio-economy.
And in the second session: Ecological aspects of microplastics, with its 4 projects (BASEMAN project, WEATHER-MIC project, PLASTOX project, EPHEMARE project), Intercalibration for the EU Water Framework Directive and Food and nutrition security.
The event further highlighted the results of CSA Oceans 2, the Horizon 2020 Support Action aimed to support the JPI.
Four parallel sessions took place to discuss about transversals topics: Looking beyond Europe-International cooperation in research funding, Beyond dissemination- Creating impact with marine science communication, Open science clinic- An introduction to terms and operation of Open Access and Open Data and Harnessing the potential of innovative technologies for the maritime sector.
The event was attended by 275 participants.

The work programme (WP) for years 2018 – 2020 will focus on moving to a greener, more resource efficient and climate resilient economy in sync with the natural environment, demonstrating a strong commitment to supporting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and targets of the COP21 Paris Agreement (PA).
One of the measures Commission is implementing to tackle overall and thematic specific issues in this WP is focused on the reinforcement of international cooperation across both calls and topics with a strong international dimension, especially to ensure the follow-up and implementation of the COP21 PA.
The topics with the special emphasis on the international cooperation are highlighted in this table. For details please consult WP.
This document follows the first edition of Opportunities E-Book for Work Programme 2014-2015 for Science with and for Society.
This e-book is meant to be a guideline of the different funding opportunities with relevance to Science with and for Society stakeholders in the different parts of the Work Programme 2016-2017. Thus it identifies topics with one or more SwafS dimension to guide SWAFS’ stakeholders through the different H2020 Work Programmes.
The WssTP’s annual stakeholder conference was held in Brussels on 14th-15th June 2017. With over 220 participants and dedicated to “The Value of Water” the programme was built upon the main concepts of the new WssTP Water Vision 2030.
Distinguished in their field, speakers participated in the five different sessions of the agenda and debated on how to boost the future water-smart society, as envisaged in the WssTP Vision. More than 230 participants were present during the two days of the conference, to debate and gain insights on how we can achieve a future water-smart society, as envisioned in the new Water Vision 2030.
