Call for evidence – Help shaping European energy policy

SHAPE ENERGY Call for Evidence

SHAPE ENERGY – Social sciences and Humanities for Advancing Policy in European Energy – represents a new €2m European platform for energy-related social sciences and humanities (energy-SSH) research. Energy-SSH has played less of a role to date in shaping European energy policy than Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines and, as such, the SHAPE ENERGY platform aims to develop Europe’s expertise in using and applying energy-SSH. SHAPE ENERGY directly feeds into the work of the European Commission’s strategy unit with responsibility for energy research and innovation.


The two-year SHAPE ENERGY project began in February 2017 and is coordinated by Anglia Ruskin University (UK). As part of its initial scoping work, it has just launched a Call for Evidence aiming to identify current understandings and future priorities for energy research from a wide range of research, policy and practitioner communities across Europe. As such, this call is not solely intended for energy-SSH researchers; we are keen to engage with energy-STEM and non-energy-SSH researchers – as well as those from policy, industry, NGOs and beyond – who may want to utilise energy-SSH research in the future.


This call is intentionally designed to be easy to do (only four core questions, 5-10mins). Responses will be anonymised and made publicly available free-of-charge in summer 2017 (via – not yet launched). There will also be an accompanying SHAPE ENERGY reflective summary, on the basis of those responses.
