What has been the impact of Horizon 2020 projects in helping us to a sustainable production or substitution of raw materials? And how can policy actions create and stimulate the desired impacts in the fields of science, society and the economy? These are questions the IMPACT-SC5 project will address with you, during a series of thematic Policy Co-Creation Workshops. Second in the series is this workshop on Raw Material projects in SC5. This workshop will be held online on 29 April 2021, 10:00-12:15 CEST.

This will be a policy co-creation workshop, aimed at discussing the results of our analysis regarding the Raw Materials related projects of Societal Challenge 5. In addition, during the workshop we will collectively identify how policy on national and European level can facilitate the enhancement of SC5 impacts’ diffusion and uptake across the EU.

The workshop is organised digitally in the context of IMPACT-SC5 (, a Horizon 2020 project that reviews the 87 RIAs ans IAs funded under the Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 5 Work Programme 2014-2015 in terms of their scientific, economic, societal and environmental performance and impacts, both individually and across portfolios of projects.
