Support for Repository Certification: Last Chance to Apply

The call launched by the Social Sciences & Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) invites applications from Social Science and Humanities repositories interested in receiving support in achieving CoreTrustSeal certification.

SSHOC will create the social sciences and humanities area of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and will facilitate access to flexible, scalable research data and related services streamlined to the precise needs of the social sciences and humanities (SSH) community.

The Social Sciences & Humanities Open Cloud wil also leverage and interconnect existing and new infrastructures from the SSH ERICs to foster synergies across disciplines and expedite interdisciplinary research and collaboration. SSHOC will also set up an appropriate governance model for the SSH area of the EOSC, taking into account the specificities of different sub-domains within the two disciplines.

Successful applicants to the new call will qualify for one or more of the following modes of support:

  • The provision of preliminary information about available resources
  • Interactive tutorials
  • Feedback on self-assessments

To be considered, candidate repositories should be situated in one of the EU Member states or associated countries (for reference please consult the following link) and serve users in the SSH domain.
The deadline for applications is 31 August 2020. All applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by the end of September.

For background information about this initiative, please consult the Certification plan for SSHOC repositories.

Apply before 31 August!
