“SSHOC” - Social Sciences & Humanities Open Cloud is the acronym to remember

SSHOC pools together Research Infrastructural excellence from the Social Sciences & Humanities Cluster Communities

A new cloud-based infrastructure to make data, tools and training available for scholars in the social sciences and humanities

SSHOC is one of the five European Union H2020 Programme “INFRA-EOSC-2018” recently funded cluster projects (together with ENVRI-FAIR, PANOSC, ESCAPE, EOSC-LIFE) that will leverage and interconnect existing and new infrastructures from the SSH ERICs and foster interdisciplinary research and collaboration.

An ambitious number of 47 organisations, experienced and skilled in Social Science & Humanities Infrastructures have gathered from all over Europe to collaborate together on SSHOC, the Social Science and Humanities Open Science Cloud project, coordinated by CESSDA.

The project began in January 2019 and runs through to April 2022 with a funding support of 14.5 million euros.
