GESIS Training

Social Science & Humanities Open Cloud

GESIS Training actively collaborates in the Social Science & Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) project. This project is funded by the EU framework programme Horizon 2020 and unites 20 partner organisations and their 27 associates in developing the social sciences and humanities area of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

SSHOC partners include both developing and fully established European Research Infrastructures from the social sciences and humanities, and the association of European research libraries (LIBER). Between them, they have expertise across the entire data cycle from creation and curation to optimal re-use, training, and advocacy.

During the 40-month lifespan of the Project (January 2019 to April 2022), SSHOC will transform the current social sciences & humanities data landscape with its disciplinary silos and separate facilities into an integrated, cloud-based network of interconnected data infrastructures.

To promote synergies and open science initiatives between disciplines, and to accelerate interdisciplinary research and collaboration, these data infrastructures will be supported by the tools and training which allow scholars and researchers to access, process, analyse, enrich, and compare data across the boundaries of individual repositories or institutions. 

GESIS Training contributes its expertise in the field of workshop organization and participation in the creation of the SSHOC Training Toolkit.
