Alison Imrie will present the 2015 research and innovation funding opportunities offered by the 'Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials' (Societal Challenge 5) part of the European Commission's Horizon 2020 programme. The overall objective of this part of the funding programme is to help achieve a resource – and water – efficient and climate change resilient economy and society, the protection and sustainable management of natural resources and ecosystems, and a sustainable supply and use of raw materials, in order to meet the needs of a growing global population within the sustainable limits of the planet's natural resources and eco-systems. The calls in the 2014-2015 multiannual work programme focus on helping to build a green economy, i.e. a circular economy in sync with the nature environment. The presentation will outline the 2015 opportunities in the calls 'Waste: a resource to recycle, reuse and recover raw materials', 'Water Innovation: boosting its value for Europe' and 'Growing a low carbon, resource efficient economy with a sustainable supply of raw materials', as well as highlighting those opportunities relating to climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials in other parts of the Horizon 2020 work programme, including the in calls 'Disaster resilience: safeguarding and securing society, including adapting to climate change' and 'Blue growth: unlocking the potential of seas and oceans'.
