Many Horizon 2020 calls require a Social Sciences and Humanities component to research applications, particularly where a cross-disciplinary approach to the research will best provide the solutions to societal issues which are being sought.
The participation of non-commercial organisations such as charities, NGOs, arts organisations, museums, libraries, galleries, and theatres will be important in proposals to certain calls. There are many opportunities for these organisations to collaborate with Oxford within Horizon 2020. These range from offering secondment opportunities for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions to being a partner in a large-scale collaborative project in one of the Societal Challenges.
Many of our academics already have links with non-commercial organisations. These links might be exploited through Horizon 2020 opportunities. Our contacts in the Business Development Team in the Social Sciences or Humanities Divisions will help you explore the potential for such partnership work. The Innovation and Partnership site also provides more information.
Collaborative partnerships tend to be the result of individuals from different institutions working on areas of shared academic interest. The collaboration is usually researcher/department-led. There is no system at Oxford for the centralised establishment of these collaborative links.
