Integration and Communication of SSH
The integration of social sciences and humanities (SSH) across Horizon 2020 aims to ensure their contribution to the R&I activities and as such reinforce the delivery of the Europe 2020 objectives and EU policies. Contributions from these SSH research fields are needed to generate new knowledge, support evidence-based policymaking, develop key competences and produce interdisciplinary solutions to both societal and technological issues.
Communication of SSH research results is crucial for ensuring impact on policy-making as well as for informing the broader public. Communication helps ensuring that SSH research not only has an academic outreach but reaches a wider audience and is communicated in ways that match the variety of audiences, needs and contexts. Translating research findings into clear recommendations to policy makers is thus an important part of EU funded social sciences and humanities projects.
