Social Sciences & Humanities Open Cloud

The SSHOC project will realise the social sciences and humanities part of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) by offering a scalable and flexible access to research data and related services adapted to the needs of the SSH community. It will leverage and interconnect existing and new infrastructures from the SSH ERICs to foster synergies over disciplines and foster interdisciplinary research and collaboration. Further the project will maximise re-use of services and data through the application of Open Science practices and apply the FAIR principles to the management of data to increase the efficiency and ease in creating and re-using them. SSHOC will set up an appropriate governance model for the SSH part of the EOSC, taking into account the specificities of different sub-domains of the social sciences and humanities.
