a European open cloud ecosystem for social sciences and humanities

The project aims to provide a full-fledged Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) where data, tools, and training are available and accessible for users of SSH data.

The focus of the project is determined by the goal to further the innovation of infrastructural support for digital scholarship, to stimulate multidisciplinary collaboration across the various subfields of SSH and beyond, and to increase the potential for societal impact.

The intention is to create a European open cloud ecosystem for social sciences and humanities, consisting of an infrastructural and human component. Development, realisation and maintenance of user-friendly tools & services, covering all aspects of the full research data cycle will be built, taking into account human-centric approach and creating links between people, data, services and training. SSHOC will encourage secure environments for sharing and using sensitive and confidential data. Where relevant, the results of EOSC-hub H2020 project will be adopted.

The 2nd Consortium meeting will be held in Florence at the CNR Campus (Area della Ricerca) in Florence (http://www.area.fi.cnr.it/index.php/en/) and will be hosted by the SSHOC’ s partner CNR (Italian National Research Council).
Participants are expected to ensure participation of WP and task leaders, with the additional participation of institutions not represented by a task or WP leader. 
The event will be a lunch-to-lunch one, so participants could fly-in in the morning and leave in the afternoon or the next day in the evening
Please, do save the date and start organizing your travels.
