SSHOC'n Tell Challenge

Try our tools and tell your user story!

SSHOC invites you to the SSHOC’n Tell Challenge, an exciting online event, part of the SSHOC final conference on 6 & 7 April. From January 2019 to April 2022 SSHOC transformed the current social sciences & humanities data landscape with its disciplinary silos and separate facilities into an integrated, cloud-based network of interconnected data infrastructures. To promote synergies and open science initiatives between disciplines, and accelerate interdisciplinary research and collaboration, SSHOC data infrastructures are supported by the tools and training which allow scholars and researchers to access, process, analyse, enrich and compare data across the boundaries of individual repositories or institutions.  

The SSHOC’n Tell Challenge invites Social Science and Humanities (SSH) researchers, data experts, trainers, and Research Infrastructure professionals, citizen scientists to try out the SSHOC tools and tell their user story! 10 fun challenges have been defined across 4 topics:

  1. SSH Open Marketplace
