View and sign our ‘Research & Innovation Agenda 2020-2030’ which highlights how energy-SSH can be better embedded into energy policymaking, innovation and research over the next decade:

Horizon Europe is the EU’s upcoming major research funding programme (Framework Programme 9), running from 2021 to 2027, and will allocate almost €100 billion. Horizon Europe will continue the tradition of structuring funding calls around global challenges such as energy, and the current proposals include a Climate-Energy-Transport cluster.

Research findings from the energy-related Social Sciences and Humanities (energy-SSH*) are fundamental to understanding and meeting energy policy challenges. Neglecting SSH insights – for example into the social, political, historical and psychological dimensions of energy transitions – risks failing to meet Europe’s ambitious visions for its energy future.

However there is a large gap between energy-SSH research and strategic energy policy bodies in terms of common working agendas. Building on input from a diversity of well over 10,000 stakeholders over two years, we present here SHAPE ENERGY’s specific recommendations to fill this gap.

These seven principles outline clear actions for European funders, policyworkers and researchers to support a more impactful role for energy-SSH in defining the energy agenda over 2020-2030. A clear reference point for these principles – given its significance – is the upcoming Horizon Europe programme.

Already supported by numerous signatories, we invite you to add your support. These will be submitted to the European Commission’s strategy unit for Energy Research and Innovation (within DG RTD) in January 2019, with an update given in spring 2019.

*SHAPE ENERGY works across the full range of Social Sciences and Humanities, including energy-related research (both current and potential) within: Business, Communication Studies, Development, Economics, Education, Environmental Social Science, Gender, History, Human Geography, Law, Philosophy, Planning, Politics, Psychology, Science and Technology Studies, Sociology, Social Anthropology, Social Policy, and Theology.

1SSH must feature more explicitly in Horizon Europe’s energy research and innovation funding opportunities, compared to Horizon 2020.

● Whilst there has been tangible progress in the mainstreaming and monitoring of SSH during Horizon 2020 (2014-2020), energy-SSH remains significantly underfunded. In 2016, only 4% of the EU’s Horizon 2020 energy research programme budget went to SSH partners, with 96% to STEM** partners with an emphasis on new energy technology development projects. SHAPE ENERGY advocates an ambition to double SSH partners’ share to 8% through Horizon Europe.

● Whilst SSH disciplines are diverse, they all place societies and humans (and how they interact with the energy system) centrally. We argue that ‘solutions’ to energy challenges must explicitly consider how energy is actually integrated within society.

● This means there is a need for both interdisciplinary (across SSH and STEM) and SSH specific calls, as in Horizon 2020. More, however, could be done to deepen SSH’s role in such interdisciplinary projects (see Principle 2) ensuring SSH does not only play a subordinate role.

● One specific way to achieve this is to reduce the number of ‘SSH-flagged’ calls, but ensure those that are flagged have very clear detail on where and how SSH is expected to be significant part of the work plan.

2Core SSH issues need to be more deeply integrated into technical energy projects which seek to address societal challenges.

● Technical energy projects that include meaningful consideration of SSH issues – e.g. political, ethical, historical, cultural, institutional – benefit from being more societally relevant and increasing the robustness and real-world impact of their findings.

● Funders are increasingly aware of the risks of not including SSH perspectives, including that problems will arise when trying to embed technological energy solutions in real organisational, cultural, or economic contexts. However, the European Commission could produce more in-depth guidance on what is expected from a project which has been ‘SSH-flagged’.

● The energy-SSH field is highly active and diverse. However, from outside, the field is often seen as only playing certain roles, e.g. education and awareness-raising to change energy behaviours or encouraging market uptake of new energy technologies. Technical energy projects need to start to go beyond this (see following point).

● Energy stakeholders involved in SHAPE ENERGY activities highlighted a wide variety of SSH areas of focus which are important on-the-ground, including: vision-building, inclusion/ exclusion, collaborations, power relations, responsibility, citizenship, policy(making), governance, planning and legal frameworks, employment, poverty, stakeholder dialogue, institutional rise and fall, politicisation of research, production of evidence, societal risks, public participation, negative societal impacts.

● Matchmaking Horizon Europe days should facilitate meetings between different disciplines, and explicitly discuss the added value diverse SSH disciplines bring to energy topics.

3 Horizon Europe energy calls should explicitly consider which SSH disciplines they focus attention on, and report on how this is being addressed.

● The wording of funding calls dictates (and limits) the disciplinary approaches that can be taken. As such, call texts – for example a focus on ‘social acceptance’ – engage certain energy-SSH research communities more than others.

● The wording of calls are not currently monitored for which disciplines they seek to include, however there is monitoring of how much funding different disciplines ultimately receive. In particular, the Humanities (e.g. History, Theology/Ethics) receive much less policy attention and tangible research funding than the Social Sciences (e.g. Economics, Business Management) despite having active energy-related research communities working on understanding and facilitating energy transitions.

● Thus, during the process of developing Horizon Europe calls, there needs to be clearer assessment of which disciplines are being prioritised, and therefore which areas of SSH insight may be underrepresented. This links to having more experts involved in these process, including in review panels for call wording (see Principle 4).

● The European Commission’s monitoring of SSH within Horizon Europe could usefully include assessment of call wording by SSH experts (external to the Commission) to indicate which disciplines they prioritise, and which active energy-SSH areas are not covered.

4The European Commission should more actively recruit energy-SSH expertise for Horizon Europe’s proposal evaluator databases and panels.

● Those evaluating EU funding proposals play a powerful role in determining what constitutes e.g. rigorous, credible, robust, meaningful and even achievable energy research, and therefore in determining which proposals are funded.

● Energy-SSH researchers need to be more embedded within these discussions, not least when decisions regarding what energy-SSH research and innovation should be funded. Every Horizon Europe energy evaluation panel should have SSH expertise represented within it.

● The European Commission is only able to invite an (energy-SSH) expert to evaluate proposals if they are already signed up to their database of experts. Better representation of diverse disciplines in these databases is therefore essential, alongside other priorities such as gender representation.

● The European Commission should ensure that its expert registration webpages align with SSH expertise. For example, the drop-down options for detailing energy research expertise are dominated by STEM-led categories which do not sufficiently cater for SSH, with ‘Energy Economics’ the only explicit energy-SSH disciplinary label given.

● The European Commission should transparently publish and widely advertise (aggregate) annual figures for the disciplinary backgrounds of their evaluators, in the same way that they produce monitoring reports on the disciplinary background of partners in successful project consortia.

5SSH should feature in interdisciplinary energy projects’ concepts (i.e. setting the project direction), not only as a tool to generate impact (i.e. an add-on at the end).

● Horizon 2020 – and most likely soon for Horizon Europe – proposals include both ‘Concept’ and ‘Impact’ sections. Projects which seek meaningful interdisciplinary working across STEM and SSH must incorporate this into the foundational arguments that project proposals are based on, and hence evaluators should expect SSH to be explicitly integrated into Concept sections in those cases.

● SSH is not merely of value for impact, where e.g. SSH is used for public acceptance, communications and dissemination that target the market uptake of a new technology.

● For Horizon Europe, the European Commission should give clear guidance as to what their ‘mainstreaming’ ambitions for SSH actually means when it comes to evaluation of inclusion of SSH within project proposal plans. More broadly, the integration of disciplinary approaches into the fundamental research questions (which guide a project’s overall direction) should be explicitly welcomed.

● Projects should remain critical of the need and mode of interdisciplinary working employed. Proposals should be explicitly invited to discuss what type of collaborative working they seek, why, and how, and any novelty in what they are proposing. SSH is particularly powerful in considering the different ontologies (ways of viewing the world) and epistemologies (ways of viewing knowledge) that different disciplines bring.

6Energy-SSH tasks should be undertaken by those with relevant background and training.

● Energy-SSH expertise requires learnt skills. Training in SSH methods matters if rigorous and robust SSH research is to be conducted, which can bring increased policy impact. For example, including a survey in a project requires a Social Science partner with knowledge of survey design, sampling, analysis techniques, etc.

● Energy-SSH training includes study of both methodology (i.e. what different methods can reveal) and methods (i.e. practically how you collect good data and undertake rigorous analysis).

● Communications Work Packages of (energy) projects should include partners with Social Science expertise in stakeholder engagement, communication studies, participatory methods and/or practical experience. It is not a simple case of ‘anyone can do communications’.

● Coordinators of interdisciplinary (energy) projects need to invest time in understanding the different disciplinary approaches their project is utilising.

7Qualitative measures are needed for the European Commission to meaningfully monitor the successful integration of SSH in energy projects.

• Monitoring SSH integration needs to include qualitative measures of success, and not be restricted to a number-counting exercise of e.g. project numbers, partners, and budget spends. For example, how has different types of expertise been brought together, rather than separated out into silo-ed work packages? What has the inclusion of SSH-inspired interdisciplinary aims, processes, and outputs led to? How has working with SSH enabled energy projects to affect policy? Relevant qualitative indicators systematically developed by the European Commission, and case study examples, could also then be valuably used in other contexts.

• Guidance to proposal writers and evaluators should make clear that qualitative impact measures and/or process-led objectives are welcomed within project proposals. For example, learning from failures is not facilitated within the European framework programmes and this can inhibit interdisciplinary efforts (which carry a higher risk of failure). Evaluation could allow for more experimentation, when accompanied by reflexive monitoring reports.

• Certain parts of the way SSH integration is monitored within European framework programmes do not fit with current academic structures. For example, Demography is an official discipline being monitored by the EC, yet conventionally is often situated within university Geography departments. All Humanities and Arts are currently combined into one category, whereas they are of course a very diverse set of disciplines.

• There must be better recognition of interdisciplinary expertise, which cannot be comfortably assigned to the European Commission’s standardised list of disciplines. Relatedly, SSH monitoring currently relies on manual assessment by the Commission of disciplinary expertise of research teams; including a component of self-evaluation could strengthen this process.

• Evaluation of the ‘Implementation’ section of interdisciplinary Horizon Europe proposals should consider the mechanisms proposed for effective collaboration. The Coordinator or Work Package leaders responsible for interdisciplinary working need to demonstrate relevant expertise, including working with conflict laden and reflexive processes.
