The project aims to provide a full-fledged Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) where data, tools, and training are available and accessible for users of SSH data.
The focus of the project is determined by the goal to further the innovation of infrastructural support for digital scholarship, to stimulate multidisciplinary collaboration across the various subfields of SSH and beyond, and to increase the potential for societal impact.
The intention is to create a European open cloud ecosystem for social sciences and humanities, consisting of an infrastructural and human component.
The main role of Trust-IT is to promote the innovation and benefits of SSHOC to targeted stakeholders, maximize visibility, activate end-user communities, disseminate results, and demonstrate impact.
Trust-IT supports the development and evolution of a SSH cloud-based infrastructure by defining the benefits and advances enabled by SSHOC.
