ACTIVITIES.

SSH CENTRE Workshops

These workshops highlighted the voices of Southern and Central and Eastern European (SE & CEE) Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) researchers tackling sustainability challenges. They aimed to show disparities in their research collaboration opportunities compared to Northern and Western researchers’ environments.

Aiming to overcome fragmentation across geography, discipline, and sustainability themes, the conclusions of these workshops were collected in a Position Statement translated in different EU and non-EU languages that gathered best practices for better integrating SSH into EU research and innovation policy.

SSH & STEM collaborative funded calls

These paid program experiences offered researchers in the SSH and STEM disciplines a unique opportunity to develop valuable knowledge and skills and directly impact policy. Through online training, participants experienced co-producing evidence, integrating knowledge from diverse disciplines, and translating research into actionable insights for policymakers.

These programmes, running until September 2024, combine practical training with real-world application, allowing participants to make a tangible difference in sustainability efforts.

Knowledge Brokerage Programme

Our knowledge brokerage programme for sustainability transitions gathered 30 PhD and Early to Mid Career Researchers working in Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) on themes of climate, energy or mobility to actively engaged in accelerating the transition process towards a carbon-free society.

Interdisciplinary Teams Collaboration

This program allows SSH and STEM researchers to collaborate on energy, mobility and climate policy recommendations. In October 2024, the conclusions will be published and presented to policy officers who manage relevant EU Green Deal policy portfolios (via the EC’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation)

SSH CENTRE Policy Insight Events

Aiming at contributing EU policies towards carbon neutrality by fostering social innovation, a collaboration between Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH) and Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) fields and providing transdisciplinary policy advice, the main core of these policy insight events, held by Friends of Europe, is to tackle social aspects of energy, climate and mobility topics giving the speaker to experts and citizens on each field to ensure an inclusive transition.

Aiming to overcome fragmentation across geography, discipline, and sustainability themes, the conclusions of these workshops were collected in a Position Statement translated into different EU and non-EU languages, which gathered best practices for better integrating SSH into EU research and innovation policy.
