Dear NCP Networks Coordinators,

We would like to share with you the document entitled “Opportunities for Researchers from the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in Horizon 2020” ( This document has been published by NET4SOCIETY4, the network of the NCPs for the SC6 “Europe in a changing world: inclusive, innovative and reflective societies”.

The principle aim of this document is to collect all the opportunities for the researchers from the socio-economic sciences and humanities in all the Horizon 2020 programme. You will find a section for each part of H2020 (first pillar, LEITs and Innovation in SMEs, Societal Challenges) that presents the topics that are considered relevant for the SSH disciplines.

The topics are organized in three different categories in each section:

The “dedicated topics” that are fully dedicated to the SSH;

The “relevant topics” that combine both STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and SSH disciplines where you can see the SSH-dedicated part highlighted in bold;

The topics with a minor SSH relevance that are listed at the end of each section.

For any questions or comments you can contact us, it will be a pleasure to receive all your feedbacks.

Elena Maffia
