More than 100 participants from the 47 partner organisations were present at SSHOC’s kick-off meeting. During the meeting partners were asked what we should expect from the Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud.
In this interview below, Frank Fischer, Director for DARIAH-EU, talks about DARIAH’s role in building the SSHOC marketplace and about the importance of showcasing SSH research practices.
You can also watch the interviews from CESSDA director and SSHOC coordinator Ron Dekker on how the project will address the full data cycle; executive director of CLARIN-ERIC Franciska de Jong on how SSHOC will strengthen the multilingual dimension of the SSH domain through CLARIN-ERIC; and the executive director of LIBER Astrid Verheusen explaining how LIBER will foster SSHOC’s communities and organise workshops and webinars.
With a duration of 40 months, the SSHOC project started in January 2019 and will continue up until April 2022. SSHOC will develop a new cloud-based infrastructure to make data, tools and training available for scholars in the social sciences and humanities. DARIAH-EU is one of the partner organisations and leads the work on developing the SSHOC Marketplace.
