Interdisciplinary perspectives for Horizon Europe: Lessons from the 4th SSH Integration Monitor Report

EASSH welcomes the continued commitment of the European Commission to integrate SSH expertise and to continue evaluating the quality of such integration. However, in the four years of monitoring Horizon 2020 (2012-2017), the integration of SSH across the societal challenges has remained very weak. 

In this contribution, EASSH aims to highlight some of the on-going issues raised by the 4thMonitoring Report so that our recommendations will improve the architecture of Horizon Europe by integrating SSH research and expertise more effectively.

Improving Research Impact Assessment in Horizon Europe: A Perspective from the Social Sciences and Humanities

In this paper, the Alliance recommends that to best capture the impact of research, researchers must be enabled to use a diversity of methods, data sources and forms of explaining the impact of their projects. EASSH invites the European Commission to capture impact not project by project, but on the wider terrain of the overall calls’ aims.
