2017-04-06 Sweden: “Open Science” Type Doctoral School


“Open Science” Type Doctoral School

Description of the project offered: 
I. General description of the project
Starting from the model “Mobilisations and Mutual Learning Action Plans (MMLs) funded by the European Commission” I propose a project with the purpose to produce research and innovation solutions responsible for an outstanding challenge in the society. One of the outstanding challenges in the society is to “Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”. This challenge represents the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 11 for sustainable development from the EC 2030 Agenda (Bruxelles, November 23rd, 2016)
The project will include several geographical regions from Europe and will concentrate on several challenges, listed below:
- Health, demographic change and wellbeing;
- Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research, and the Bioeconomy;
- Secure, clean and efficient energy (in line with the Commission priority for 2014-2019, Energy Union);
- Smart, green and integrated transport;
Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials;
- Europe in a changing world - inclusive, innovative and reflective societies (in line with the Commission priorities for 2014-2019, 'Stronger Global Actor', 'a Union of Democratic Change' and a 'New Policy on Migration') including Social Science and Humanities and Big Data ;
- Secure societies - protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens.
In the project maximum 3 research themes will be proposed. To be of real impact, proposals must ensure research and innovation solutions and their possibility can be increased by public-private partnerships whereby Citizen Science can also be involved.
II. Partnership
The partners in the project will be: NGOs, industry, government and academia.
III. Rules:
1. The research themes are agreed by all partners;
2. Every partner can propose research themes;
3. Choosing research themes is done with the majority vote of the partners;
4. Every partner from universities will allocate two PhD positions for the research theme that they have chosen to participate;
5. NGOs, industry enterprises partners in the project, can propose candidates for the PhD positions;
6. The research themes will provide an Open Science pilot which will become a reference for other scientific endeavours. It will demonstrate how Open Science and RRI can be used to foster effective science-policy-society interfaces to support research and innovation at various geographical levels, in Europe. It will foster socially responsible citizen science approaches embedding the concept of RRI. It will provide EU leadership in this emerging practice of science, within Europe.
IV. The title of the project:
I propose to be set after establishing the three research themes, themes that will be corroborated with the Goal 11 and 2030 European Agenda and the aforementioned challenges of the topic.
V. Funding:
100%, Work Programme Horizon2020, Call H2020-SwafS-2016-17 “Science with and for Society”, Topic: “Putting Open Science into action”.

VI. Others:
Actually, the project proposes an “Open Science” type of doctoral school for an outstanding challenge of the society.
