"The humanities, social sciences and cultural sciences in Europe will in future have even better open science infrastructures available. An important foundation for this is laid by the project "Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud", which was launched at the beginning of January 2019. The project makes an important contribution to a common European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) is one through the EU's research funding program Horizon 2020 funded project that aims to provide an open cloud ecosystem for the humanities and social sciences. Data and tools will be developed and published along the entire research data cycle. The developments are accompanied by extensive communication and training programs that connect people with social and humanities data and services. The European Research Infrastructures (ERICs) of the social sciences and humanities are responsible for the project; It is managed by CESSDA ERIC, the Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives. A total of 45 organizations from across Europe are involved in the project. The project runs from January 2019 to April 2022 and is funded with around 14.5 million euros.
The research infrastructures AUSSDA and the Austrian Center for Digital Humanities at the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ACDH-OeAW) are involved in the project in Austria . In addition, a local technology company is involved in the project with the Semantic Web Company . In Austria, for example, the communication strategy of the project is being drafted, a European data marketplace for the social sciences and humanities is being programmed, and data on national elections are being prepared...."
