About this programme

The aim of the Societal Challenge 'Europe in a changing world – Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies' (SC6) is to foster a greater understanding of Europe, provide solutions, and support inclusive, innovative and reflective European societies in a context of unprecedented transformations and growing global interdependencies.

Pressure from increased migration flows, socio-economic and cultural transformations from new forms of human-technology interaction under the fourth industrial revolution, and new developments in European, national and global governance have the potential to significantly impact Europe's future at many levels. At the same time, and linked to these developments, the citizens' trust in many public institutions and their capacities to address effectively these challenges is weakening while their concerns are increasing.

To tackle these challenges, the work programme 2018-2020 will focus on three major themes:

- Migration

- Socio-economic and cultural transformations stemming from the fourth industrial revolution

- Governance for the future

AVIA-GIS / SMEinstrument

Avia-GIS is a Belgian innovative SME established in 2001. They have built research and public authority trust over the past 19 years and developed a unique, disruptive software suite - VECMAP® - that will support society to overcome one of its important health threats, the spreading of Pests of Public Health importance.

With the help of a Horizon 2020 SME Instrument-phase 2 project, they will be able to add Integrated Pest Management (IPM) functionalities and bring VECMAP®IPM to the market. Within 5 years Avia-GIS will enable 2000 SME pest controllers and 2340 local authorities to shift to IPM strategies. With the grant they will raise revenue from 2 M€ to 14.2 M€ in 2024, and increase the headcount from 15 to 58.

The Horizon 2020 grant was an essential component of their second investment round. To date Avia-GIS already raised 1 M€ in additional private equity and they are now are seeking to complement this with an equal amount as a subordinate loan.
