Sciences and Humanities. COESO is looking for projects that meet all of the following criteria:

    stakeholder from outside academia (civil society organizations,
    socio-economic actors, policy-makers or others);
  • Projects involving social sciences and humanities disciplines;
  • Projects that follow participatory research methodology or collaborative
    research methodology;
  • Projects willing to be part of an observation protocol and a testing phase for
    the development of a platform aiming at supporting and facilitating
    participatory and collaboratory research practices;
  • Projects addressing societal challenges (a connection with at least one of
    the Sustainable Development Goals).

Funding is only available to legal entities established in EU Member States including their outermost regions or associated countries eligible to receive Horizon 2020 grants. Apply by March, 31 2022.
