    Net4Society5 will be the transnational network of National Contact Points (NCPs) for Societal Challenge 6 (SC6) “Inclusive, innovative, and reflective societies” in Horizon 2020. NCPs are set up to guide researchers in their quest for securing EU funding. Net4Society5 will further develop the current Net4Society network of SC6 NCPs (former NCPs for Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities), which was first established in 2008 and includes currently around 90 SC6 NCPs from over 55 countries in Europe and beyond. Net4Society5 will ensure that all SC6 NCPs have the relevant knowledge and skills for their work and can offer professional, high-quality and tailor-made services to applicants. All nominated SC6 NCPs (also non-beneficiaries) will continue to have access to information and capacity building tools such as workshops, SC6 NCP Info sessions, trainings, webinars, factsheets or newsletters. Net4Society5 foresees targeted activities to support applicants in SC6, with a special focus on those countries that have been participating at low levels in the programme up to now. The project will facilitate interdisciplinary and international consortium building through the organisation of brokerage events, through a sector specific partner search service and through a research directory of SC6 key players. In addition, Net4Society5 will organise a regional Info day and proposal check event in a country that has been participating at low level in the programme up to now. To support the successful integration of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in all parts of Horizon 2020, Net4Society5 will publish success stories and factsheets on “SSH integration”, as well as a document listing funding opportunities for SSH in all of Horizon 2020. Various promotional activities enhancing the visibility of Net4Society5 services and the SC6 in Horizon 2020 will underline these efforts.

    NET4SOCIETY4 will be the transnational network of National Contact Points (NCPs) for Societal Challenge 6 (SC6) “Inclusive, innovative, and reflective societies” in Horizon 2020. NCPs are set up to guide researchers in their quest for securing EU funding. NET4SOCIETY4 will further develop the current NET4SOCIETY network of SC6 NCPs (former NCPs for Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities), which was first established in 2008 and includes currently around 80 SC6 NCPs from Europe and beyond. NET4SOCIETY4 will ensure that all SC6 NCPs have the relevant knowledge and skills for their work and can offer professional, high-quality and tailor-made services to applicants. All nominated SC6 NCPs (also non-beneficiaries) will have access to information and capacity building tools such as workshops, NCP Info days, trainings, webinars, factsheets or newsletters. NET4SOCIETY4 foresees targeted activities to support applicants in SC6. The project will facilitate interdisciplinary and international consortium building through the organisation of brokerage events, through a dedicated partner search service and through a research directory of SC6 key players. In addition, NET4SOCIETY4 will organise expert meetings e.g. on “impact” of SC6 research and disseminate the meetings’ results to NCPs and applicants. To support the successful implementation of “embedding” Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in all parts of Horizon 2020, NET4SOCIETY4 will carry out surveys on the integration of SSH in Horizon 2020. The project will publish success stories and factsheets on “embedding”, as well as a document listing funding opportunities for SSH in all of Horizon 2020. NET4SOCIETY4 will organise two large conferences in the thematic area of SC6 to provide visibility to the funding programme and the possibility to discuss future research needs. Various promotion activities enhancing the visibility of NET4SOCIETY4 services and the SC6 in Horizon 2020 will underline these efforts.

    This project is the second in the series of EC-financed parts of the Graphene Flagship. The Graphene Flagship is a 10 year research and innovation endeavour with a total project cost of 1,000,000,000 euros, funded jointly by the European Commission and member states and associated countries. The first part of the Flagship was a 30-month Collaborative Project, Coordination and Support Action (CP-CSA) under the 7th framework program (2013-2016), while this and the following parts are implemented as Core Projects under the Horizon 2020 framework. The mission of the Graphene Flagship is to take graphene and related layered materials from a state of raw potential to a point where they can revolutionise multiple industries. This will bring a new dimension to future technology – a faster, thinner, stronger, flexible, and broadband revolution. Our program will put Europe firmly at the heart of the process, with a manifold return on the EU investment, both in terms of technological innovation and economic growth. To realise this vision, we have brought together a larger European consortium with about 150 partners in 23 countries. The partners represent academia, research institutes and industries, which work closely together in 15 technical work packages and five supporting work packages covering the entire value chain from materials to components and systems. As time progresses, the centre of gravity of the Flagship moves towards applications, which is reflected in the increasing importance of the higher - system - levels of the value chain. In this first core project the main focus is on components and initial system level tasks. The first core project is divided into 4 divisions, which in turn comprise 3 to 5 work packages on related topics. A fifth, external division acts as a link to the parts of the Flagship that are funded by the member states and associated countries, or by other funding sources. This creates a collaborative framework for the entire Flagship.
