Trans-national co-operation among National Contact Points for Socio-economic Sciences and the Humanities (SSH NCPs)

Objective

NET4SOCIETY3 is the continuation of the international network of National Contact Points for Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH NCPs). NCPs are set up to guide researchers in their quest for securing EU funding. NET4SOCIETY was established in 2008 and includes almost 60 SSH NCPs from Europe and beyond.
Facing the transition from FP7 to Horizon 2020, NET4SOCIETY3 will help researchers prepare for new funding schemes and structures, and will ensure that all SSH NCPs have the relevant knowledge and skills for this task. All nominated SSH NCPs, even if not beneficiaries of the project itself, will have access to information and capacity building tools such as workshops, NCP Info days, trainings and an online Virtual Helpdesk. The project website will address NCPs and researchers alike, and include first-hand information on FP7 and Horizon 2020, an SSH event calendar and a repository of relevant publications.
NET4SOCIETY3 will support researchers to connect into all “Societal challenges” of Horizon 2020. Its aim is to increase the visibility of SSH research to policy makers and other research areas in order to ensure that SSH aspects are integrated into all “Societal challenges”. The integration of SSH aspects in the “Societal Challenges”, other ERA-Initiatives and SSH Infrastructures will be monitored and analysed. Established services of NET4SOCIETY, such as the Research Directory, will be continued and improved. A dedicated task addressing EU12 issues will analyse the reasons for low participation and success rates of these countries. It will identify recommendations on how to overcome existing barriers.
A large information event targeting 250-300 participants will be organised in spring 2014, coinciding with the launch of Horizon 2020. It will inform about Horizon 2020 and connect researchers and policy makers. Various promotion activities enhancing the visibility of the SSH programme and Best Practice in SSH research will underline these efforts.
