Horizon 2020: the future of EU research funding for science and the environment

Horizon2020 is the European Commission’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, covering the period 2014-2020. One of the aims of the programme is to promote scientific research that tackles the grand societal challenges facing Europe and the World. On the 3rd and 4th October, a conference hosted by Aarhus University and the Partnership for European Environmental Research (PEER) will bring research activities together across disciplines to foster solutions to the challenges facing society and gain insight into the scientific needs that are going to be addressed in the new Horizon2020 programme.  Horizon 2020 points to six major societal challenges to which the research community should identify solutions. One of these is the challenge: Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials. Fifteen years after the UN Aarhus Convention, this conference is looking to facilitate the scientific community, in a transparent and evidence-based process, to inform and inspire the European strategic research agenda. The conference is open to researchers, scientists, students, administrators, managers, representatives of industry and non-governmental organisations as well as decision-makers and the outcome will be to provide input to the European Commission on the knowledge gaps and future research needs in Horizon 2020.  READ MORE
