Work Programme 2010, Cooperation, Theme 8: Socio-Economic Sciences And Humanities (European Commission C(2009) 5893 of 29 July 2009)

Funded under: FP7-SSH


The objective is to generate an in-depth, shared understanding of complex and interrelated socio-economic challenges Europe is confronted with, such as growth, employment and competitiveness, social cohesion, social, cultural and educational challenges in an enlarged European Union, sustainability, migration and integration, quality of life , global governance and interdependence, conflict resolution and new challenges for democracy in particular with the view of providing an improved knowledge base for policies in the fields concerned.
Socio-economic sciences and humanities (SSH) enable us to understand the way in which societies are organised and governed and how they evolve and change. The capacity to study the phenomena described in this work-programme depends on quantitative and qualitative methods, data and other resources. European researchers should play a leading role and their research could be enhanced by the participation of research teams from non-European countries. The 2010 work programme concentrates on EU political priorities, in each of the activity domains it covers. In each activity, a part of the work-programme aims at addressing an important societal challenge that needs to be tackled in the short to medium term perspective, through a specifically designated set of research actions. Activities also include other topics that either address urgent needs or complement the work to address the challenge.
