The Guild proposes principles for implementation of horizontal aspects of Horizon Europe

The Guild of European Research-intensive Universities has published a contribution to the Strategic Planning process of Horizon Europe, presenting principles for the implementation of horizontal aspects of the programme. The document, which was presented on 9 April 2019, aims at helping decision-makers translate the legal framework into practices that would allow Horizon Europe to succeed in its mission.

In its position paper, the association makes the following recommendations:

  1. Introduce improved structures for scientific advice in the priority-setting of R&I agendas
  2. Introduce a balance between research and innovation
  3. Ensure the effective implementation of high-quality R&I missions
  4. Engage citizens with research and innovation
  5. Ensure the genuine embedding of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH).

In addition, The Guild has published a document outlining priorities for the Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society cluster. These priorities were formulated by the academic community of The Guild’s member universities and their faculties for Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities. The aim is to provide a future-oriented outlook for three challenges affecting European societies in the coming decades, as well as to articulate how collaborative research could contribute to responding to them.
