Abstract

The Research Directorate-General of the European Commission is responsible for implementing the sixth Framework Programme for RTD. In this context, the work programme 'Integrating and Strengthening the European Research Area', includes Research Area 8 'Actions to promote the European research Area in the social sciences and humanities and their contribution to the knowledge based society in Europe'. Within the Research Area 8, it is foreseen to develop 'the basis of European R&D indicators and statistics in the field of social sciences and humanities' in order to develop appropriate indicators to support policies for social sciences and humanities (SSH).
The study that is the object of this call for tender 'R&D Indicators and Data for Social Sciences and Humanities', forms part of the work to contribute to providing the basis of the European research and development indicators and statistics in the field of SSH.
The main objective of the study is to collect the existing data, to identify gaps in data, to develop methodologies for filing gaps and to collect the new data, for research and development and human resources in SSH. Further, it should be analysed if the SSH research activities differ in comparison to the natural sciences and engineering upon which the existing technical definitions and concepts of the traditional science, technology and innovation indicators are largely based.
