EUROPA - Research and Innovation: What's New in Health and life sciences
The Commission is preparing Horizon Europe, the next and most ambitious EU research and innovation programme (2021-2027) with a proposed budget of €100 billion, in an intensive codesign process. The co-design process ensures that Horizon Europe is directed towards what matters most, improves our daily lives and helps turn big societal challenges into innovation opportunities and solutions for a sustainable future.
By bringing together speakers from the EHFGs ‘four pillars’ and drawing on the Forum’s expert participants from health and other relevant sectors and stakeholder groups, an interactive, outcomes-oriented session will be shaped. DG RTD will showcase the outcomes of the co-design process (focusing on the Health-related impacts), to reach a full range of stakeholders and gather feedback on the projected direction of the Horizon Europe.

The Conference theme : Creating a unified foundation for the Sustainable Development: Research, Practice and Education
The 8th ICSD 2020 will be an excellent opportunity to share your ideas and research findings relevant to the Sustainability Science, through the European network of academics. This interdisciplinary forum is for scholars, teachers, and practitioners from any professional discipline who share an interest in—and concern for— sustainability in an holistic perspective, where environmental, cultural, economic and social concerns intersect. Papers will be published in Open Access EJSD Journal (Thompson Reuters) and Proceedings. This ambition will proceed in a multidisciplinary way across the various fields and perspectives, through which we can address the fundamental and related questions of Sustainable Development. We invite you to submit an abstract in the range of the following streams within the ICSD 2020 program: 1. Economic Sustainability: Financial Sustainability, SME, MicroFinance Emerging Countries, International Trade 2. Environmental Sustainability: Water and Soil conservation, Healthcare, Renewable Energies, Food and Enviromental Legislation 3. Socio-Cultural Sustainability: Sustainable Urbanism, Education, Human Development, Psychology, Sociology We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, posters/exhibits, or virtual presentation. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community send an e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person.
