Europe in a changing world – Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies

“Europe in a changing world - Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies” aims at fostering a greater understanding of Europe, by providing solutions and support inclusive, innovative and reflective European societies with an innovative public sector in a context of unprecedented transformations and growing global interdependencies.

Pressure from increased migration flows, socio-economic and cultural transformations from new forms of human-technology interaction under the fourth industrial revolution, and new developments in European, national and global governance have the potential to significantly impact Europe's future at many levels. At the same time, and linked to these developments, the citizens' trust in many public institutions and their capacities to address effectively these challenges is weakening while their concerns are increasing. In light of these challenges, the scientific and innovation priorities of SC6 under work programme 2018-2020 are focused around three major themes: migration, socio-economic and cultural transformations stemming from the fourth industrial revolution, and governance for the future.

The aim of the work programme 2018-2020 is to address these concerns, by providing objective scientific elements of assessment regarding these phenomena and formulating elaborate policy options or applicable solutions, in order to help better tackle these complex issues and inform citizens objectively.
