FP9 ‘s ambitious aims for societal impact call for a step change in interdisciplinarity and citizen engagement.

EASSH greatly welcomes these ideas and trends: the European SSH community, represented by the Alliance, has been a strong champion of “real” interdisciplinarity and of concrete and innovative approaches to citizen engagement at various critical stages in the programme and project cycles. However, for FP9 to be fullfil its ambitions EASSH members would like to make recommendations in three main areas: radical reform of instruments to support research; programme evaluation and key performance indicators; and dedicated evaluations of interdisciplinary proposals.

FP9 must invest in Research for a Democratic Union and the European Social Dimension

The European Alliance for SSH calls on the EU to make an ambitious investment in Democracy and the European Social Dimension. The 9th Framework Programme for European research 2021-2027 must address the changing nature of citizenship and democracy. These questions relate to concerns that preoccupy European citizens just as much as their elected representatives.  Read the position paper here
