Brief description

SSHOC is a 40-month EU-funded project which is transforming the social sciences and humanities data landscape with its disciplinary silos and separate facilities into an integrated, cloud-based network of interconnected data infrastructures. To unlock heterogeneous data in SSH collections across Europe and render it easy to process, enrich, analyse and compare, SSHOC will pool and harmonise the required tools and services and making these available to researchers. Project outcomes will support the development of the larger European Open Science Cloud, stimulate multidisciplinary collaboration, and increase the potential of research data for societal impact.

Our role

Leading Work Package 2, Communication, Dissemination and Impact, Trust-IT has complete responsibility for implementing communication and dissemination strategy across an integrated suite of print, online and social media, and a full programme of in-person and virtual conferences, workshops, webinars, and other events. 

The focus for project activities is a fully responsive website and service delivery platform . Designed, built and maintained entirely by Trust-IT personnel, the website is constantly under development and will eventually accommodate an online directory of tools and services, the SSH Open Marketplace, a comprehensive training resources toolkit, and an online consultation platform.

Trust-IT personnel also create, produce and maintain a constantly expanding library of marketing and promotional materials, write, edit and publish articles, reports and a regular newsletter, and organise and coordinate project meetings and events across Europe. 

If you would like to learn more about working towards measuring your dissemination results and in providing support in your digital and communication marketing activities, then we’d be happy to tell you more and provide you with a quote.
