SHAPE ENERGY launched an open Call for Evidence over April-July 2017 aimed at identifying current understandings of and future priorities for energy research from a wide range of researchers and other stakeholders including those from policy, industry, NGOs and beyond. Questions included a focus on the use of energy-related Social Science and Humanities in energy policy.

This was an important mechanism to seek broader input into our work at the start of the Platform, and new perspectives on the problems and solutions SHAPE ENERGY will consider. This is now being published as a complete set of evidence submitted, together with headline reflections on the results, which will feed into construction of the SHAPE ENERGY Research & Innovation Agenda 2020-2030 as well as the implementation of other upcoming Platform activities.
