Horizon Scanning Working Group 3: Energy Efficiency
The Energy-SHIFTS Working Groups – of which there are four – run from Autumn 2019 to Summer 2020. This Working Group 3 is specifically interested in research broadly relating to Energy Efficiency.
We will provide a detailed list of 100 Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) research questions relating to Energy Efficiency, which we believe should be prioritised in future EU-funded research and innovation, specifically under Horizon Europe. We are identifying these research questions through a systematic Horizon Scanning methodology.
Energy-SHIFTS has a direct policy advice role to the European Commission’s Directorate General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD), and this Working Group will submit its funding recommendations to its Ecological and Social Transitions (C5) and the Clean Energy Transition (D1) units.
Further information can be sought from the Working Group Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org).
