The objective of SWOSH is to promote Sustainable Work and the participation of Swedish researchers in Horizon 2020 (H2020) and Horizon Europe (FP9) through networking activities, information, capacity building and support.
The goal of our activities is to increase the participation of Swedish researchers in the upcoming work programmes as well as ERC (excellent science), Maria Skłodowska-Curie Actions, Innovative Training Programmes (ITNs) and Cost Actions.
SWOSH targets researchers in the broad area of sustainable work, including occupational health, work organization, employment conditions, digitalization and new forms of work, green jobs etc.
Focus is on reducing the hurdles for Swedish researchers to participate in H2020 and FP9, such as not enough international contacts and lack of experience in how to get EU funding.
SWOSH encourages different types of participation at different stages of researchers’ careers, for better long-term effectiveness. The figure illustrates different steps of EU funding instruments, requiring increasing responsibility and engagement.
