Horizon 2020: Governance for the future

This year in April, we drew your attention to the Horizon 2020 call on "trust in governance" that supports initiatives, which aim at increasing the knowledge base on trust, including changed in trust, in order to improve the qualit yof democracy. The call will be opened in Novemer 2018 and will be open until 14 March 2019.

Now, we would like to draw your attention to some more Horizon 2020 calls that are expected to enhance the governance of the future.

Institutional Capacities

Call on "New forms of delivering public goods and inclusive public services" - DT-GOVERNANCE-05-2018-2019-2020
Governance is being transformed by new approaches to delivering public services which allow for the involvement of citizens and various other actors. The challenge is to critically assess and support as needed this transformation based on an open collaboration and innovation platform supported by ICT ('government as a platform') and on an open environment and ecosystem with clear frameworks and guidelines for modular services quality ('government as a service') in accordance with the EU eGovernment Action Plan 2016-2020 and the European Interoperability Framework Implementation Strategy.

Focus area: Digitising and transforming European industry and services (DT)
Types of action: RIA Research and Innovation action
Type of Call: single-stage
Opening date: 06 November 2018
Deadline: 14 March 2019 | 17:00 CET

Call on "Pilot on using the European cloud infrastructure for public administrations" - DT-GOVERNANCE-12-2019-2020
Given the complexity of our societies, public authorities need innovative means and tools that can enable them to develop better evidence-based policies. The development of such policies needs to involve local actors such as citizens and businesses, in order to better inform policy-making while ensuring higher levels of acceptance for policies and of trust in the authorities. Data analytics and usage of cloud infrastructure to gain access to shared data can help improving policy making at all levels, national but also local. Moreover, engaging citizens and local actors in the generation of data or in the analysis of 'big data' and its ethical issues can assist local governance.

Focus area: Digitising and transforming European industry and services (DT)
Types of action: IA Innovation action
Type of Call: single-stage
Planned opening date: 06 November 2018
Deadline: 14 March 2019 | 17:00 CET

Participation

Call on "Enhancing social rights and EU citizenship" - GOVERNANCE-04-2019
Boosting social rights can help address divergence in social trends among Member States and reduce the risk of socio-economic shocks. At the same time, social rights are essential for the full realisation of EU citizenship and reaching the EU's targets in reducing poverty and social exclusion. By mitigating social risks and by assisting people with transitions and vulnerabilities, social rights can boost trust to public governance. The challenge is to integrate the social dimension into European policies and to connect it with European citizenship going beyond the traditional focus on mobile citizens to look also at those who are "immobile".

Types of action: RIA Research and Innovation action
Type of call: single-stage
Planned opening date: 06 November 2018
Deadline: 14 March 2019 | 17:00 CET

Call on "Trust in governance" - GOVERNANCE-01-2019
Trust is a fundamental condition for a fair and cooperative society. It also plays an important part in contributing to social capital. While a degree of distrust may be required for a well-functioning democracy, waning trust in governments and other institutions and in the EU can impact European governance in multiple ways. The challenge is to restore and improve trust as a basis for sustainable and legitimate governance.

Types of action: RIA Research and Innovation action
Type of call: single-stage
Planned opening date: 06 November 2018
Deadline: 14 March 2019 | 17:00 CET
