EERA has been collaborating with a number of partners, among them ISE and EASSH, in order to highlight the importance of SSH research for European research in general and for Horizon 2020, the EC's new Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, in particular.

In its "Agenda for Horizon 2020", EERA Board Members and Network Representatives call for a broader and more inclusive strategy to address Europe's societal and economic challenges: "[T]he challenges described in H2020 are not only challenges for societies at large; they arise at the level of community, family and personal life. [...] Education can help bridge the gap between these global challenges and the responsibility and competence of citizens of all ages to act locally".
