Energy-SHIFTS Policy Fellowship application form

Energy Social sciences & Humanities Innovation Forum Targeting the SET-Plan (Energy-SHIFTS) is a €1m investment through the EU Horizon 2020 programme running from 2019-2021. Specifically, it represents the European Forum for energy-related social sciences and humanities (energy-SSH). 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 Energy-SHIFTS forum is working to develop Europe’s interdisciplinary expertise in using and applying energy-SSH, particularly in front-line policy.

The two-year Energy-SHIFTS project began in April 2019 and is coordinated by Anglia Ruskin University (UK). A core part of its work, the Policy Fellowship scheme aims to identify current energy challenges faced by policyworkers, and help them access the latest energy-SSH research to help address those challenges.

We will make every effort to ensure that individuals cannot be identified by only indicating organisation type and country in this analysis. Any quotes will be anonymous or use pseudonyms. This analysis will support a broader understanding of urgent policy issues in the field of energy and SSH. All Energy-SHIFTS reports will be made publicly available free-of-charge (via
