EASSH would like to thank Wellcome Trust for hosting a lunch in London, which brought together European foundations committed to supporting research in the social sciences and humanities.  The paper Funding Research Between Public and Private Resources was prepared by EASSH to initiate what we hope will be a series of discussions about the current and future of social science and humanistic research in Europe.

EC High Level Group invites EASSH to co-design FP9

On Tuesday 6 June, the EC High Level Group led by Pascal Lamy has invited EASSH among the stakeholders for a discussion on Maximising the Impact of EU Research and Innovation Programmes. The mandate of the High Level Group – in the context of the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 – is to draw strategic recommendations on EU R&I programmes in the future. The Group is working towards issuing a report which will be presented at the 'Research and Innovation: Shaping our Future' conference in Brussels on 3rd July. As a crucial part of the evidence base from which the recommendations will be drawn, the Group considers it very important to be able to meet with different EU-level stakeholder organisations whose members are actively engaged in EU R&I programmes. EASSH was also invited to submit a short paper addressing few key issues. Please read the paper here.
