This is Cluster 2 which unites competitions and projects of researchers whose main field of activity is social sciences and humanities. One of the main principles of Horizon Europe programme is the one of interdisciplinarity, therefore it is important for scientists to conduct research in different fields of knowledge. The scientific novelty of the research is of great significance as well."

Research and Innovation Funding Programme Horizon Europe is a seven-year EU programme with a budget of about 95.5 billion euros.
