WP4: Innovations in Data Production

D4.16 Specification of the new features of the Aïoli platform

This report is the first deliverable of the Task 4.6 “Semantic annotation of Heritage Science Data” within the WP4 “Innovations in Data Production”. The focus of this task is the development of an innovative web service for the reality-based 3D annotation of heritage artefacts within the SSHOC infrastructure. The report contains specifications for appropriate upgrades to the Aioli platform which will provide the base for this service. 

D4.18 SSHOC Reference Ontology (beta version)

This report describes the SSHOC Reference Ontology (SSHOCro), a common meta-level schema based on CIDOC CRM, to provide a semantic interoperability framework for the description of the data life cycle used by Social Science and Humanities researchers. The SSHOCro is provided in RDF/S in the file titled “D4.18 SSHOCro_v.1.0_beta.rdf”, which is submitted as an attachment to this report.

Mapping of two indicative selected standards to the SSHOCro

This report documents the work undertaken in the frame of the SSHOC project Task 4.7 Modeling the SSHOC data life cycle. Specifically, SSHOC Deliverable 4.19 concerns the mapping of two selected metadata standards used to document social science research ⎼namely DDI Codebook and CMDI ⎼to the SSHOC Reference Ontology (SSHOCro). The mapping involves the integration and harmonization of DDI and CMDI metadata schema and the transformation of selected cases from social sciences and humanities repositories, documented with the DDI and CMDI to SSHOCro.

WP5: Innovations in Data Access

D5.17 Implementation plan for the archeological case study

In SSHOC Task 5.7 (Open Linked Data. Archaeology Case Study), a virtual reconstruction of the Roman theatre in Catania will be created as an example of an actual transition of archaeological data to the cloud, i.e. from data silos on individual computers to webservices. The case study is based on a unified workflow that starts with the archaeological documentation and results in a virtual reconstruction.

D5.2 Data access protocol for DBSS data, linked to survey data, conforming FAIR principles (Access to biomedical data)

The deliverable documents a data access plan for enhancing the availability of biomarker data from dried blood spot samples collected by SHARE. The procedure will be of interest to researchers, survey methodologists, and data archives providing biomedical data collected in survey settings.

WP6: Fostering Communities, Empowering Users, & Building Expertise

D6.10 Report on the SSHOC Training Community

This document is the deliverable “D.6.10 – Report on the SSHOC Training Community” of the Horizon2020 project “Social Sciences & Humanities Open Cloud” (hereinafter also referred to as “SSHOC”, project reference: 823782).

This deliverable is the first report on the activities that the SSHOC project, task 6.4 has undertaken to build a Training Community for trainers in the Social Sciences and Humanities using the European Open Science Cloud. This task started in July 2019 and activities will continue till the end of the SSHOC project.

D6.1 SSHOC Community Engagement Strategy

This document builds on an initial stakeholder landscape analysis, emphasizes strategic coordination and outlines WP6 engagement activities. The planned engagement activities are horizontal to the project and account for networks, channels and tools already used by project partners. Gaps and risks are also identified.

D6.2 Building Expertise Strategy

Following D6.2 - SSHOC Community Engagement Strategy and building upon it, the SSHOC project has created this Building Expertise Strategy. It describes an initial plan for the project’s activities and tools to be used in order to build expertise among user communities.

D6.7 Inventory of existing learning materials

This report gives an overview of the landscape of training material in the SSH disciplines cluster and the broader context of EOSC based on inspecting main existing sources of training materials and their content. The collected information serves as input for further activities in WP6 as well as an important source of information for WP7.

D6.9 SSHOC Trainer Toolkit (draft)


This deliverable describes the first release of the SSHOC Training Toolkit which was launched on 20 April 2020. 

The Toolkit consists of an inventory of both self-learning materials and training materials which trainers in the Social Sciences and Humanities can use to develop and improve their own training activities.
