The H2020 Societal Challenges calls are a real funding opportunity for researchers to design real impact projects to contribute Agenda 2030 needs, delivering solutions for a better and more sustainable life for all.

We can help you design, write and implement your H2020 Societal Challenges proposal. 

What we do              work plan.pdf

The Agenda 2030 needs researchers' and innovators' work, citizen participatory and policy engagement, among others socio-economic actors to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and each one of its targets without exception.

The H2020 Societal Challenges are focuses on the major concerns shared by citizens in Europe and elsewhere, as well as the Europe 2020 Strategy, Innovation Union and European Research Area; and the 10 priorities of the Junker Commission: Jobs, Growth and InvestmentDigital Single MarketEnergy Union and ClimateInternal MarketA deeper and fairer Economic and Monetary UnionA balanced and progressive trade policy to harness globalisationJustice and Fundamental RightsMigrationA stronger Global Actor, and Democratic Change.

 

The 7 Societal Challenges are:

  • Health, demographic change and wellbeing;

  • Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research, and the Bioeconomy;

  • Secure, clean and efficient energy;

  • Smart, green and integrated transport;

  • Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials;

  • Europe in a changing world - inclusive, innovative and reflective societies;

  • Secure societies - protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens.

 

Each H2020 Societal Challenges has pre-estabished topics that will be implemented through Research and Innovation Actions (RIA), Innovation Actions (IA) or Coordination and Support Actions (CSA). We work RIA and IA, not CSA.
