Horizon 2020

Published by , 11/10/2017

The new Horizon 2020 work programme for 2018 will be published in November 2017. Applicants to Societal Challenge 2 ‘Food Security, Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry, Marine, Maritime and Inland Water Research and the Bioeconomy’ will be expected to adopt a ‘multi-actor approach’ for many call topics, whereby the projects must focus on real problems or opportunities that farmers, foresters or others who need a solution (end-users) are facing. It also means that partners with complementary types of knowledge, e.g. scientific, practical or other, must join forces in the project activities from beginning to end. Multi-actor approach projects will therefore be able to develop innovative solutions which can be more readily applied in practice and cover real needs. Moreover, those benefiting directly from the results of the projects will be more motivated to use them, because they were involved in generating them. This brochure provides case study examples of the multi-actor approach: Horizon 2020 multi-actor projects
