With the EU’s current research funding programme Horizon2020 coming to an end, and planning for its successor Horizon Europe at an advanced stage there is a pressing need to engage policy makers, NCPs, stakeholders and the humanities research community on how to mobilise humanities expertise in the shaping of the programme’s thematic clusters.
Attendees will hear a presentation from EASSH Director Dr Gabi Lombardo on the emerging shape of Horizon Europe before going on to form roundtables to discuss the shaping of the Horizon Europe thematic clusters and how to better take advantage of AHSS expertise in designing and shaping them. This discussion will feed into an IHA report which will inform requests for comment, input and feedback as Horizon Europe is defined during 2019/20.
Dr Gabi Lombardo is the Director of the European Alliance for Social Sciences and Humanities (EASSH), the largest advocacy and science policy organisation for social sciences and humanities in Europe. She has a first degree and MA in Philosophy and History from Rome University La Sapienza (Italy) and a PhD in Economic History from the London School of Economics (UK). In 2018, Dr Lombardo received the Young Academy of Europe Annual Prize.
