The overall mission of the Austrian EU Council Presidency conference on “Impact of Social Sciences and Humanities for a European Research Agenda - Valuation of SSH research in mission-oriented research” is to bring valuation (i.e. the provision of added value through SSH) and impact contributions of SSH research to transformative, mission- and challenges-oriented national and European research and innovation agendas to the forefront, to openly reflect and structurally discuss the topic in order to make it visible, debatable, verifiable and usable! In line with this mission, the objectives of the conference are 1. to provide a reflecting and forward-looking format to identify and appraise valuation pathways and impact generating processes within genuine SSH research and in inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary research activities that include SSH and arts-based research 2. to showcase, learn from and discuss structures and policies which are beneficial for an enhanced impact-orientation of SSH research at various level (e.g. project-level, institutional level [including measures and programmes], R&I policy-making level) 3. to make a contribution to tracing, assessing and measuring the use and impact of R&D activities from the field of SSH to the benefit of a transformative and mission-oriented European research and innovation agenda.
