Report of the Expert Group on Humanities: Positioning Humanities Research in the 7th Framework Programme

Funded under: FP7-SSH

Abstract

In February 2006, the Directorate-General for Research set up an Expert Group on the Humanities as part of the Commission¿s strategy to fully integrate the Humanities into the 7th Framework Programme (FP7).
The Group, comprised of eleven scholars and chaired by Professor Wolfgang Mackiewicz (Freie Universität Berlin), was given the remit to advise the Commission on how to design research topics in a way that would make them attractive to researchers in the Humanities across Europe, and would help researchers better to understand the opportunities inherent in FP research.
The final report of the Group, delivered in March 2007, identifies and highlights the contributions that the Humanities can make to policy-oriented research; moreover, it makes a number of recommendations for the future of Theme 8 - "Socio-Economic Sciences and the Humanities" - of the specific programme "Cooperation".
