EU Funding Calls for HORIZON 2020 Open in 2014 & 2015

17 July 2014

HORIZON 2020 Programme Call for Research on Inclusive, Innovative and Reflective Societies. EU grants involve between EUR 1.5 and 2.5 million.

In the frame of the HORIZON 2020 Programme, a specific Work Programme on ‘Inclusive, Innovative and Reflective Societies’ has been published.

The Work programme 2014 – 2015 focuses on large-scale multidisciplinary and comparative research and integrates social science and humanities. The calls in 2015 under the chapters  ‘Reflective Societies,  The Cultural Heritage and European Identities’ and ‘New Forms of Innovation’,  also including a  scheme ‘Fast Track to Innovation’,  provide opportunities for higher arts education institutes to join the HORIZON 2020 programme. 

The call ‘Emergence and transmission of European cultural heritage and Europeanisation’, which may be of particular interest to HAE institutions, has two deadlines:
  • 30 September 2014
  • 7 January 2015

The Call in Brief

Research should support EU cultural policies linked with the emergence, transmission and use of cultural heritage at local, regional, national and European levels.  Interestingly, the Call also refers to contemporary trends and shaping  the cultural heritage of tomorrow. Key elements include:
  • emergence of a European cultural heritage in a historical perspective and interlinking local, regional, national and European aspects of cultural heritage
  • impact of cultural heritage at different levels of Europeanisation and on citizen perceptions of  Europe
  • tangible and intangible cultural heritage as well as less established or popular examples of cultural heritage in the area of the arts and contemporary trends in arts and culture in the shaping of tomorrow's European cultural heritage, differentiating between commercial and non-commercial aspects
  • multilingual nature of the European heritage, seeking to gain a deeper understanding of the axiological, linguistic, social and cultural aspects of multilingualism and how they ensure the transmission of cultural heritage across generations and borders
  • links between combined cultural heritage and various forms of formal and non-formal education and training
  • development of social, axiological, linguistic, cultural and political memories or imaginaries in order to assess trends towards various European cultural heritages and its links with Europeanisation
  • assessment of the touristic potential of EU level cultural heritage
