Target: National contact points, Participants

Themes: Cluster 2 Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society, Pillar 2, Social Sciences and Humanities, Cross cutting elements within Horizon Europe

Following a workshop activity which took place in May in Dublin, the report summarises delegates' input on opportunities, barriers and useful support.

In a nutshell, the main conclusions are:

  • From engaging in Horizon Europe, SSH researchers can gain funding, prestige, expansion of networks and opportunity for impact.
  • Social science and arts & humanities should not be understood as a monolith.
  • Reliable partners are a huge resource. Being included in networks might be challenging for newcomers.
  • Early career researchers can benefit from participation in Horizon Europe projects. However, provisions for their inclusion and career-development are not explicitly required nor rewarded by the funder.
  • There are considerable differences among institutions in terms of in-house, opportunities for peer-learning, expertise, capacities and contractual conditions.
