The PLATON+ project is organising a stand aiming to bringing Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) to the forefront of EU-funded research while also stressing the importance of SSH as a crucial part in producing knowledge in other research disciplines and in policy making. Visitors of the conference “Sustainable Development” are invited to jump into the world of SSH.

Promoting socio-economic sciences and humanities is at the core of PLATON+ (www.platonplus.net) project funded by the European Commission. It aims at bringing Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities to the forefront of EU-funded research while also stressing the importance of social sciences and humanities as a crucial part in producing knowledge in other research disciplines and in policy making. Visitors of the conference “Sustainable Development – a challenge for European Research” are invited to jump into the world of social sciences, economics and humanities at the “Crossing Borders” booth.

PLATON+ brings forward an issue that is high on the agenda of the European Research Area – interdisciplinary orientation of research activities. Specifically, it aims to raise awareness about research potential and research findings in the fields of social sciences and humanities among researchers from other fields, policy makers as well as the business community and NGOs.

At “Sustainable Development” in Brussels, visitors are invited to tell us about their interfaces with socio-economic research and questions in their work and to use the presence of both projects for exchanging ideas and perspectives on fruitful interdisciplinary cooperation and use of socio-economic knowledge.

At the booth, visitors will also be provided with information (policy briefs and working papers about different social key issues) from ongoing and recently finished EU-projects.

“Crossing Borders” is booth 28 at Sustainable Development (http://ec.europa.eu/research/sd/conference/2009/index_en.cfm).
