Integration of Social Sciences and Humanities research (SSH) in Horizon 2020 projects

The integration of Social Sciences and Humanities research (SSH) in Horizon 2020 projects comes with great opportunities but also with certain challenges. For decades, the European research was mainly focused on the expertise of researchers specialised in life and physical sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Now, the Horizon 2020 policy looks further – it is based on a premise that integration of SSH aspects into European research is essential to generate new knowledge.

Net4Society – the Network of National Contact Points of Societal Challenge 6 ‘Europe in a changing world -inclusive, innovative and reflective societies’ prepared a short and informative factsheet about the added value of SSH integration, the main challenges and ways  to overcome them in order to effectively integrate SSH in a Horizon 2020 project.
