Abstract

The paper presents the proceedings of the Workshop on "Support to Research Infrastructures in the 6th Framework Programme: New opportunities for Social Sciences and Humanities". [...] The European Commission, DG Research, unit B3 - Research Infrastructures organised this meeting in collaboration with the respective Programme Committee for Research Infrastructures.
The main purpose of the meeting was to help better prepare social sciences and humanities for the research infrastructures activities in the 6th Framework Programme (2002-2006). In the perspective of the European Research Area (ERA), the meeting also aimed to promote European dialogue and encourage understanding of, and enable knowledge sharing for, matters of strategic concern in research infrastructures for social sciences and humanities.
The workshop proved to be a very interesting and inspiring event. It brought together approximately 50 participants to discuss what types of European activities can be best addressed using the support mechanisms of the 6th Framework Programme and how European collaboration can be best developed in the ERA. The participants comprised some members of the Programme Committee, National Contact Points, national and European managers of research infrastructures, national and European managers of research activities in social sciences and humanities, researchers, one member of the European Research Advisory Board (EURAB) and members of the working group on research infrastructures in social sciences and humanities (RISSH) of the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI).
The report is divided into two sections. The first section makes a short summary of the presentations and the discussions and outlines the main conclusions of the meeting. A more detailed description of the presentations and discussions is made in the next and last section of the report. You will find attached the agenda and the list of participants.
