You are a researcher of the socio-economic sciences or humanities?
At present a wide range of new research topics and research opportunities in the socioeconomic sciences and humanities (SSH) is provided.
The current call of the 7th EU Research Framework Programme in the area of SSH was launched in July 2009 and we are glad to provide you with the unique opportunity to gain first hand information in participating in the planned transnational event.
For the first time a transnational event on socio-economic sciences and humanities within
FP7 is organized in joint cooperation between Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
This event does not only offer you an overview of the current call for proposals but also the
opportunity to get information about the new strategy of the programme, which was
implemented with the current call and will conduct you as a SSH researcher throughout the
remaining FP 7-years.
The event will focus especially on the following themes:
- How does the new programme strategy for SSH look? Why is a new strategy
necessary and what influence does it have on the current call for proposals?
- What are the main thematic focuses? How can I apply for funding and which novelties
are to be considered?
- Which innovative dissemination strategies are there and why is the dissemination of
research results of such importance?
Furthermore a successful coordinator will report about research and management
experiences on European level and the National Contact Points will present their help and
support options.
This event also provides you the unique opportunity for networking activities! Experts of the
European Commission, colleagues of your research area and the National Contact Points
are looking forward to share their knowledge and experience with you!
Target group:
Researchers from universities, research organisations, consultants, and others who are
interested in the socio-economic sciences and humanities in the 7th EU Research Framework
This event is jointly organised by the National Contact Points of Austria (FFG), Germany (PT-DLR)and Switzerland (EURESEARCH). Language of the informaion event is ENGLISH.
