4 Introduction The part of the Work Programme will help build effective cooperation between science and society, to recruit new talent for science and to pair scientific excellence with social awareness and responsibility. The strength of the European science and technology system depends on its capacity to harness talent and ideas from wherever they exist. This can only be achieved if a fruitful and rich dialogue and active cooperation between science and society is developed to ensure a more responsible science and to enable the development of policies more relevant to citizens. Rapid advances in contemporary scientific research and innovation have led to a rise of important ethical, legal and social issues that affect the relationship between science and society. Improving the cooperation between science and society to enable a widening of the social and political support to science and to technology in all Member States is increasingly a crucial issue that the current economic crisis has greatly exacerbated. Public investment in science requires a vast social and political constituency sharing the values of science, educated and engaged in its processes and able to recognise its contributions to knowledge, to society and to economic progress. will be instrumental in addressing the European societal challenges tackled by Horizon 2020, building capacities and developing innovative ways of connecting science to society. It will make science more attractive (notably to young people), raise the appetite of society for innovation, and open up further research and innovation activities. It allows all societal actors (researchers, citizens, policy makers, business, third sector organisations etc.) to work together during the whole research and innovation process in order to better align both the process and its outcomes with the values, needs and expectations of European society. This approach to research and innovation is termed Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). RRI fosters the creativity and innovativeness of European societies. In general terms, it implies anticipating and assessing potential implications and societal expectations with regard to research and innovation. In practice, RRI consists of designing and implementing R&I policy that will a) engage society more broadly in its research and innovation activities, b) increase the access to scientific results, c) ensure gender equality in both the research process and research content, d) take account of the ethics dimension, and e) promote formal and informal science education. For the years , the calls for proposals shall focus on: Call for Making science education and careers attractive for young people (SEAC); Call for Promoting gender equality in research and innovation (GERI); Call for Integrating society in science and innovation (ISSI); PART 16 - Page 4 of 57

5 HORIZON 2020 WORK PROGRAMME Call for Developing governance for the advancement of responsible research and innovation (GARRI); Horizon 2020 Cross-Cutting Issues will be supported as appropriate through the 4 calls and in particular: 1. All calls are taking up and supporting Responsible Research and Innovation, one of them being specifically dedicated to Gender equality; 2. The participation of third countries and international organisations is welcome. Funding will be subject to existing agreements; 3. Most of the activities will require the establishment of multi-stakeholder consortia, including from Social Sciences and Humanities, SMEs and Civil Society Organisations, philanthropic organisations, etc. 4. It is expected that all activities funded under demonstrate their innovative character as well as their economic, social and environmental sustainability; 5. The projects funded under in Part 16 of the Work Programme will participate in the Pilot on Open Research Data in Horizon 2020 in line with the Commission's Open Access to research data policy for facilitating access, re-use and preservation of research data. Projects have the possibility to opt out of the Pilot. A related new element in Horizon 2020 is the use of Data Management Plans (DMPs) detailing what data the project will generate, whether and how it will be exploited or made accessible for verification and re-use, and how it will be curated and preserved. The use of a Data Management Plan is required for projects participating in the Open Research Data Pilot. Further guidance on the Open Research Data Pilot is made available on the Participant Portal. 6. All calls will be instrumental in the completion of the European Research Area. PART 16 - Page 5 of 57

6 Call for Making Science Education and Careers Attractive For Young People H2020 SEAC 2014/15 Knowledge-based societies need to make science education and careers attractive for young people in order to allow scientifically literate citizens to actively participate all along their life to their development, and to enable them to opt for a scientific career. To reach this objective, this call will aim at: Developing scientific citizenship by promoting innovative pedagogies in science education, attracting more young people towards science, with a special emphasis on girls, and addressing the challenges faced by young people, in pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and innovation; Developing Responsible Research and Innovation in Higher Education Curricula; Easing the access to scientific careers by increasing the service level of the EURAXESS Services Network. These activities are targeted to citizens and their associations or groupings, with primary, secondary and higher education establishments, science museums, libraries, but also media, artists, creative industries, as well as researchers and innovators, policy makers at national, regional and local levels, research organisations, etc. The expected outcome of European Commission actions is to improve the scienceliteracy and the responsibility of citizens as well as their access to scientific careers. Proposals are invited against the following topics: SEAC Innovative ways to make science education and scientific careers attractive to young people Specific challenge: The Union needs all its talents to boost creativity and competitiveness. It needs an innovative science education which shall enable todays' and tomorrows' citizens to play a more active role in the Research and Innovation process, to make informed choices and to engage in a democratic, knowledge-based society. It needs young boys and girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), while at the same time adhering to the values embedded in Responsible Research and Innovation. In such a manner, the Union will reach the objective of a R&D intensity of 3% of GDP which is essential. Yet it has been increasingly difficult to attract adequate numbers of young people, to these domains and to avoid a brain-drain of talent from Europe. Therefore, a shift to innovative and effective methods is necessary, so as to raise the attractiveness of science education and scientific careers and boost the interest of young people in STEM. Scope: The action aims to support a range of activities, which will raise young boys' and girls' awareness of the different aspects encompassing science and technology in their societal content and to address the challenges faced by young people when pursuing careers in STEM. It aims at bringing both girls and boys into the scientific world via PART 16 - Page 6 of 57

7 formal and informal teaching and learning and to orient them towards undertaking scientific careers. In order to be more attractive, research careers should also be more closely linked to labour market needs. In this context, the potential orientation towards more entrepreneurial and multidisciplinary research careers should be recognised. The proposals shall focus on innovative, forward-looking science education methods and/or on incentives and measures to make scientific and technological careers attractive to young students, including actions addressing the challenges in offering long term career perspectives. They may inter alia make young people work with open-access educational resources; become familiar with the use of science media; make the link between creativity and science; appreciate the relevance of gender balance and dimension in research; understand the practical value of research ethics and integrity; actions. The proposals shall also foster sustainable and cross-cutting interaction between the different levels of the education system, research institutions and other establishments, industry, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs). Such proposals shall improve the attractiveness of science education and scientific careers to young people; address challenges in offering long term career perspectives, as well as raise awareness of the importance of trans-disciplinary research and Responsible Research and Innovation in the education system. The establishment of a link with SCIENTIX The Community for Science Education in Europe is strongly encouraged, since it consists of a multidimensional educational tool and would assist in spreading out STEM practices and better understanding of the relation between science and technology in practical terms. When the proposed activities include scientific and technical work it should be implemented as a Research and Innovation Action, otherwise as a Coordination and Support Action The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 1 and 1.8 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts. This action allows for the provision of financial support to third parties in line with the conditions set out in Part K of the General Annexes. Expected impact: In the short term, the action will coordinate and leverage Member States activities with respect to innovative approaches in the field of science education and scientific careers. In the medium term, the action will position EU research teams on the map as leaders in innovative science education methods and meeting Europe's targets regarding R&D intensity and competiveness. It will increase the number of researchers and innovators, including women, in the public sector and in industry who will be able to better address societal challenge. As a result, in the long term, the action will contribute towards achieving the Europe 2020 education target by improving STEM skills among young people less than 15% of pupils under-performing by 2020 and increasing the range of innovative products that reflect societal needs. Type of action: Research and Innovation Actions; Coordination and Support Actions. The conditions related to this topic are provided at the end of this call and in the General Annexes PART 16 - Page 7 of 57

8 SEAC Responsible Research and Innovation in Higher Education Curricula Specific challenge: This topic will raise the importance and uptake of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in Europe and beyond, via the design, production and dissemination of educational material and curricula for use by Higher Education Institutions and other higher education establishments, and their incorporation into educational programmes for science and engineering studies. The embedding of RRI in curricula will help Higher Education Institutions to shape more responsible and responsive researchers, able to better frame their research in a societal context, necessary for tackling societal challenges more effectively and in a more transdisciplinary manner. Scope: The action assists the development of openly available curricula that embed all five RRI keys (societal engagement, gender equality and gender in research and innovation content, open access, science education and ethics), in a comprehensive approach for students, teachers, professional trainers and academic staff of Higher Education Institutions and other higher education establishments. Inspiration and good practices should be drawn from both the EU and third countries. Higher Education Institutions, other higher education establishments, research organisations and relevant institutions, as well as associations thereof, such as national science academies, and civil society organizations (CSOs), Science Museums and Science Centres should work together to explore the state of the art and develop a comprehensive methodological approach for RRI curricula. The creation of partnerships to this end would be an asset. The proposals shall provide ways for the testing, dissemination and widespread uptake of course material by academia in Europe and elsewhere. Ideally, both curricula and practical case-studies, theoretical and practical exercises, also embedding policy relevance, should be made easily and freely accessible on-line using the latest multimedia support. They shall benefit stakeholders, including business and industry 1, beyond participants in several educational systems in Europe; materials/results shall be equally relevant to other countries. The proposals shall identify the choice of the countries be based on transparent, appropriate criteria. An International Cooperation dimension is essential. A link shall be established with RRI Tools a project to foster Responsible Research and Innovation for Society, with Society; links shall also be made with the education experts of the project s Advisory Board. Moreover, working on making a link where applicable with the cooperation and partnerships pillar of Erasmus+ programme is welcome. The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 1 and 1.5 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts. This action allows for the provision of financial support to third parties in line with the conditions set out in Part K of the General Annexes. Expected impact: Activities will enhance Higher Education Institutions and higher education establishments' social involvement and their role with and for society through 1 PART 16 - Page 8 of 57

9 the five RRI keys. It will provide future researchers and innovators with tools, skills and qualifications that facilitate and ensure engagement with society and ethical working methods. Commission action will position EU Higher Education Institutions (HEI) at a competitive advantage vis-a-vis their global partners. In the medium term, it will leverage complementary activities at regional and Member States level. It will kick start global debate on the setting of standards for the incorporation of RRI in Higher Education curricula. In the long term, seeding RRI principles at the earliest possible stage will reduce the training costs for Member States, and increase the social benefit and social relevance of European R&I. Type of action: Coordination and Support Actions. The conditions related to this topic are provided at the end of this call and in the General Annexes SEAC Trans-national operation of the EURAXESS Service network 2 Specific challenge: EURAXESS will help making a career in European research institutions more attractive, both for researchers in Europe who are facing career decisions and for those who are currently outside Europe and might consider relocating to Europe to develop their research careers here. By increasing the service level of the whole EURAXESS Services Network the benefit for the research community will be long-lasting and far-reaching. Scope: The objective of the action is to further diversify the services provided by the EURAXESS Service Centres to take care of the career development of mainly young researchers in Europe. A particular focus shall be on female Higher Education Institution students and researchers, including mobile and non-mobile ones, with the aim to contribute to the completion of the ERA and the Responsible Research and Innovation field. This action will support activities the EURAXESS Service Network represented by Bridgehead organizations to address strategic issues related to further widening of the services - from mainly mobility-related to new services. These include for example the set-up of career development centres and/or support for dual careers, support to researchers integration in SME s and industry in general, better integration of researchers into the culture of the host country, as well as mentoring programmes for researchers. Services should also include dedicated gender-specific information on the following: returners' schemes (e.g. fellowships or other opportunities aimed at researchers who had a career break, so to facilitate their re-entry), programmes aimed at female researchers and the promotion of Higher Education Institutions and research organisations having in place a Gender Equality Plan. Other services for researchers should be proposed: for instance, national EURAXESS website shall provide policy information as provided on the European EURAXESS portal about EU research policies for researchers and their careers. This includes, issues related to ERA and Responsible Research and Innovation, Open Access, in cooperation with existing coordination and support actions (e.g. OpenAIRE, RECODE, FOSTER). Activities such as the deepening of existing services through trainings, seminars, networking and updating of national EURAXESS portals shall also be part of this action. 2 This activity- directly aimed at supporting the development and implementation of evidence base for R&I policies and supporting various groups of stakeholders- is excluded from the delegation to REA and will be managed by the Commission services. PART 16 - Page 9 of 57

10 The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of the order of EUR 3.6 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts. Expected impact: Increased job and funding opportunities on the EURAXESS Jobs portal and personalised assistance to researchers will accelerate the career development of young researchers, in particular female researchers. In the medium term, the action will produce efficiency gains and reduce transaction costs by creating a better match of existing talent and R&I needs and capacity in European research institutions. It will contribute directly to the Horizon 2020 objective of cross-national and international circulation of researchers; it will increase the number of researchers who have access to research infrastructures through Union support and the number of excellent researchers overall. It will contribute to meeting ERA objectives on gender equality. Over time, the action will contribute directly towards European targets on R&D intensity and percentage of researchers in the active population, and to boost European research competitiveness. Type of action: Coordination and Support Actions. The conditions related to this topic are provided at the end of this call and in the General Annexes SEAC EURAXESS outreach to Industry Specific Challenge: The EURAXESS initiative with its four pillars is an important tool for the development and implementation of our policies on researchers mobility and careers thus contributing to the completion of the ERA and to the implementation of the Responsible Research and Innovation field. Two specific challenges are tackled in this topic targeting an open and transparent labour market for researchers by outreaching to industry and by building a human resources strategy for researchers. There is a clear need to raise the awareness of industrial organisations (both large companies and SMEs) of the opportunities offered by EURAXESS Services and Jobs. Their expectations and possible demands to support the removal of obstacles hindering the collaboration between public and private sectors in research and innovation need to be better assessed and met. Scope: This action aims at providing EURAXESS service centres with tools to increase the uptake/use of the EURAXESS portals and services by the industry sector. Initiatives shall be supported that have proven to increase the level of interaction of industry with EURAXESS portals and services for the benefit of Responsible Research and Innovation. This topic will support strategic activities to enhance collaboration with industry by EURAXESS Services Network's members that have signed the Declaration of Commitment. This shall include special IT applications for the national EURAXESS portals and mapping of specific needs of the industry sector. Activities such as trainings, seminars, networking and updating of national EURAXESS homepages shall also be part of this action. In this context information and guidance on Responsible Research and Innovation shall be provided for researchers & employers, taking-up and further the information and training material produced by the RRI Toolkit (Seventh Framework programme RRI TOOLKIT project). In cooperation with relevant projects and initiative, EURAXESS shall provide guidance on how making research open access can be beneficial for the career development of researchers as well as offering benefits to PART 16 - Page 10 of 57

11 industry. Gender equality shall also be taken into account in the activities. Interoperability between national EURAXESS portals and the European one (especially EURAXESS Jobs) shall be foreseen. The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 0.5 and 1 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts. Expected impact: It is expected that these new EURAXESS initiatives will significantly contribute to kick-start and advance careers of researchers. While making more industrial job and funding opportunities available on the EURAXESS Jobs portal, the second activity aims at contributing to improve working conditions for researchers, as institutional barriers are removed, in turn enabling them to focus on producing excellent research. In the medium term the actions will produce efficiency gains for employers and open up the labour market for researchers. In the long term, the schemes will increase mobility of talent across Europe and from third countries into Europe. Type of action: Coordination and Support Actions.

14 Call for promoting Gender Equality in Research and Innovation H2020 GERI 2014/2015 The European Union aims to eliminate inequalities and to promote equality between men and women in all its activities, including in Research and Innovation. Promoting gender equality is one of the key priorities of a Reinforced European Research Area Partnership for Excellence and Growth. The Member States are invited to remove barriers to the recruitment, retention and career progression of female researchers, address gender balance in decision making and strengthen the gender dimension in research programmes. Horizon 2020 promotes gender equality in particular by supporting structural changes in the organisation of research institutions and the gender dimension in the content and design of research activities. To reach this objective, the activities of this Call will aim at: Encouraging girls to study science and female students to further embrace a career in research; Analysing the impact of gender diversity in research teams on research and innovation outcomes; Developing a common framework to evaluate national initiatives to promote gender equality in research policy and research organisations; Supporting research organisations to implement gender equality plans. These activities are targeted to researchers and innovators, research organisations, primary, secondary and higher education establishments, science museums, citizens and their associations or groupings, media, policy makers at national, regional and local levels, etc. 6. The expected outcome of European Commission actions is to increase the participation of women in research, improve their careers, achieve gender balance in decision making and further the excellence of R&I by integrating the gender dimension in research and innovation. Proposals are invited against the following topics: GERI Innovative approach to communication encouraging girls to study science Specific challenge: To attract more women to research careers, the Commission launched in 2012 the communication campaign "Science: it's a girl thing!", which aims at encouraging years old girls to study science. Young people often make careercritical decisions at this age and either orientate towards or away from scientific subjects. Girls tend to drop out of Science, Technology, Engeneering and Mathematics (STEM) for various reasons linked in particular to the social roles they expect or are expected to play as well as the way STEM subjects are taught. In order to better attract and retain 6 More information on past and on-going activities on gender in research and innovation can be found on the website of GENPORT: PART 16 - Page 14 of 57
