The Directorate for 'Research in the economic, social sciences and humanities' (SSH) of European Commission's DG Research is organising an information day on the 'Social platform on research for families and family policies' (Topic SSH-2009 - 3.2.2 of the SSH Work Programme 2009) on 23 October in Brussels, Belgium.

Based on a focused, critical review of existing research, the social platform will bring together the part of the research community involved in the field with stakeholder representatives, such as family associations, policy-makers or social partners. Its objective is to build an exchange between researchers and stakeholders on the basis of their needs and the outcomes of the studies.

The aim of this half-day event is to provide information on the topic of the call, on the new 'social platform' instrument and to allow potential proposers or participants to share project ideas or to present their specific competence for the creation of project partnerships. In addition, the Socio-Economic Sciences and the Humanities Research Programme and its 2009 Work Programme in the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) will be presented.

The call that will be the focus of this meeting was published under the call identifier FP7-SSH-2009-C on 3 September 2008.For further information, please download the programme as a pdf document:
