Call for Proposals on Cultural Heritage

Horizon 2020

The Call for Proposals Horizon 2020 - Societal Challenges sub call H2020-REFLECTIVE-2014-2015 “Reflective societies: cultural heritage and European identities” topic “REFLECTIVE-9-2014: Social Platform on Reflective Societies” has been published by the European Commission, Directorate Research and Innovation.


Research on the European history, culture, its peoples and their identities, performative practices and lifestyles is crucial particularly in the light of European integration, as well as of growing diversity within European societies. The purpose of the current “Reflective societies: cultural heritage and European identities” call is to create a social platform to bring together the relevant research communities with stakeholder representatives, such as for example practitioners from the socio-cultural and artistic sectors (galleries, libraries, archives, museums, and other public institutions), as well as policy stakeholders (at European, national and/or local levels). A wide range of views and of stakeholder participation will be encouraged.


Under the current “Reflective societies: cultural heritage and European identities” call, the objective of the social platform is to develop an understanding of the challenges and opportunities for research in the context of reflective societies. The future European research agenda in the field should pay particular attention to the policy dimension and its European relevance, taking also into account the issues of data collection and measurement.


The “Reflective societies: cultural heritage and European identities” call aims to support the European Commission in the definition of an innovative and focused research agenda on the reflective societies in Europe, highlighting fundamental research issues and key policy questions in this context. Through research and networking among researchers, stakeholders and policy-makers, this it will advance the knowledge base that underpins the formulation and implementation of relevant policies and practices in Europe. It will thus also contribute to the development of the European Research Area in this domain.


Under the current “Reflective societies: cultural heritage and European identities” call for proposals, the eligible proposals are coordination and support actions consisting primarily of accompanying measures such as standardization, dissemination, awareness-raising and communication, networking, coordination or support services, policy dialogues and mutual learning exercises and studies, including design studies for new infrastructure and may also include complementary activities of strategic planning, networking and coordination between programs in different countries.


The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of the action is estimated at EUR 9 000 000 maximum, for the period 2014-2015. The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU in the order of EUR 1 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.


The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the current “Reflective societies: cultural heritage and European identities” call for proposals is 3 June 2014.
