Research ministers demand key role for social sciences in Horizon 2020

Europe's research ministers have voiced concern that social sciences and humanities should be given a more prominent role in Horizon 2020, the next European Union framework programme for 2014-20.

Horizon 2020 is the world's largest publicly-financed research programme, for which the European Commission has proposed a budget of EUR80 billion, down from the EUR100 billion tabled by the European Parliament.
