Civil Society Europe and the European Alliance for Social Sciences and Humanities (EASSH) call for an ambitious investment on societal challenges in the Future Research Programme with a strong civil society involvement.
Researchers and Civil society organisations are joining forces to propose a cluster on People’s Union, covering research addressing EU citizens’ main concerns.
The paper’s focus is on three main points:
- The need for a cluster with attention to People’s Union
- Few examples of areas of interests in the cluster: Democracy, Inequalities, Culture and Art, and Education
- The importance to finance this cluster with a comparable budget to all the other clusters. This research not only is relevant to EU citizens but also addresses two of the Programme’s priorities: gender balance and wider inclusion of Eastern European scholars
