Vision2020: The Horizon Network will hold a Horizon 2020 International Energy Event: Opening Energy Horizons: Getting ready for success in the new Horizon 2020 Work Programmes (2018 – 2020) on the 22nd and 23rd of May at the Wales House, Brussels, Belgium. The event is hosted by Cardiff University as lead of the Energy Helix, in collaboration with ERRIN Opening Science and Energy & Climate Change Working Groups.

The main purpose of this two-day event is to bring together academics, researchers and colleagues from business and industry working in the Energy field, to form new collaborations across the whole sector in readiness for the forthcoming Horizon 2020 Energy Work Programme (2018 – 2020).

Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) feature prominently in the recently published Energy Scoping Paper (2018 – 2020), which states that “A better understanding of ‘energy behaviour’ of different actors, the effects of policy/economic interventions, and a deeper involvement of citizens are crucial for changing the energy system.” With this in mind we are very keen to have representatives from the Social Sciences and Humanities communities in addition to representatives from the wider Energy sector.

Participants will have the opportunity to present their expertise and fit within the Energy scoping paper topics through power-point presentations.

To make this event as fruitful as possible, we would like to invite mainly, but not exclusively, researchers and those from SMEs (Small and Medium-sized Enterprises) to join us. Delegates will be invited to choose the group discussion they wish to follow on Day 2.
