From January 2019 to April 2022 SSHOC transformed the current social sciences & humanities data landscape with its disciplinary silos and separate facilities into an integrated, cloud-based network of interconnected data infrastructures. 

The final conference programme was designed to showcase the results achieved, lever on the valuable synergies built and learn about user stories from the community. There was also time to reflect on policy & sustainability issues and look towards the future. 

The SSHOC Final Conference brought together 290 of which 90+ joined in Brussels from  Research infrastructures, Researchers, Research Libraries and Archives, EOSC key-players, industry and policymakers from the Social Sciences and Humanities and beyond. 

While the sessions focused on the impact and context of the developments within the project, the programme committee wanted to invite researchers to test and use the tools and services, find new uses for them, and document their experiences. They devised the SSHOC’n Tell challenge, six teams told the story of their experience with one of the SSHOCingly good and sustainable tools.
