Subject: Open Letter to the European Commission on Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities research in the new FP, 2014-2020

Dear colleagues,

We are writing to thank you for signing the Open Letter to the European Commissioner for Research and Innovation.

In a ˝ day meeting we had with Maire Geoghegan-Quinn on 10 November she acknowledged the mobilisation of the SSH community across Europe and beyond and gave some reassurances about the reintegration of SSH-research into the next Framework Programme “Horizon 2020” (Link to the Commissioner’s speech) <http://europa.eu/rapid/pressReleasesAction.do?reference=SPEECH/11/741&format=HTML&aged=0&language=EN&guiLanguage=en>  .

We must bear in mind, however, that in the past the SSH-related Framework Programme component has been, time and again, in danger of being eliminated at the end of negotiations between national governments, the European Parliament and the Commission, and also the size of the budget accessible for SSH-researchers is far from being secured.
This is why we shall keep the signature function open so that you can further circulate it to colleagues in the relevant fields through the appropriate channels and invite them to also sign up. For your easier reference, we have copied an updated version of the message in which you can invite them to sign.

We shall do a first analysis of the signatures received by 20 November, publicise the results that far through a press release, and inform MEP’s as well as national governments and parliamentarians of the result. We shall keep you, of course, informed.

With our best wishes

Open Letter to the European Commission on Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities research in the new FP, 2014-2020

Dear colleagues,

With this message we would like to invite you to sign an Open Letter addressed to the European Commissioner for Research and Innovation (http://www.eash.eu/openletter2011/), alerting her to the vital insights that Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) contribute to address Europe’s and the world’s Grand Societal Challenges.

First results of our initiative to strengthen the SSH-component in “Horizon 2020” were presented to Commissioner Geoghegan-Quinn on 10 November 2011. On this occasion she interacted with the scientific community during in a ˝ day symposium on the role of SSH in “Horizon 2020” in London. She expressed her appreciation for the mobilisation of the community towards strengthening the SSH domain in the new Framework Programme.
Following this successful exchange, we shall interact next (after 20 November ) with lawmakers in the European Parliament and national political authorities.
It would therefore be useful to collect further support from a large cross-section of the SSH- and SSH-related research communities number until 20 November.

In view of legislative decisions to be taken on the next 100-Billion-worth EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020 (2014-2020), the letter stresses the necessity for a varied and strong research programme in the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH): it argues that neglecting such potential contributions as SSH research has to make risks undermining the EU strategy to develop innovative, inclusive and sustainable societies. Yet, there still is a distinct danger of insufficient funding in Horizon 2020 for research areas such as cultural change, demography, education, the economy and globalisation, identity politics and social cohesion, and many others. For background information on these matters see: http://www.eash.eu/openletter2011/

The Open Letter initiative has grown out of deliberations among a number of European umbrella organisations in the area of SSH, and seeks to bring to the attention of the European Commission and national governments the concerns of the largest research community in Europe.

If you agree, that a substantial and independent SSH-centered research programme should be included in all future European Framework Programmes, we invite you to sign the Open Letter online at http://www.eash.eu/openletter2011/. Kindly circulate this invitation to sign among your institutions, and across your networks, projects and subject associations.

Thank you in advance for signing and for supporting this initiative. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions:
