SSHOC Principal Goals

SSHOC will create the social sciences and humanities area of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) thereby facilitating access to flexible, scalable research data and related services streamlined to the precise needs of the SSH community.

SSHOC will leverage and interconnect existing and new infrastructures from the SSH ERICs to foster synergies across disciplines and expedite interdisciplinary research and collaboration.

To maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of data re-use SSHOC will apply Open Science practices and FAIR principles to data management.

SSHOC will set up an appropriate governance model for the social sciences and humanities area of the EOSC, taking into account the specificities of different sub-domains within the two disciplines.

Main impacts

The Social Sciences and Humanities are seamlessly integrated in the European Open Science Cloud
