HubIT SSH Workshop
18 September 2018 - Science Centre AHHAA in Tartu, Estonia
ICT is a booming field promising new exciting technologies for societies at large, and it is harder and harder to imagine our life without it. However, the pressure for the IT sector to ensure that societal needs are taken into account both as regards research and innovation aims and the research design, is growing.
What can be the role of social sciences and humanities in this context?
Multi-, cross-, trans- and non-disciplinary collaborations are becoming more and more common in the academia. The EU framework program not only supports the SSH role's in ICT research aimed at ensuring ethics, but also encourages social scientists to drive societal transformation in times of new technological challenges (issues of privacy, robotics and automation, etc).
The aim of HubIT SSH Workshop is to discuss collaboration between social sciences/humanities and ICT research through success stories and discussions. In particular, the event will address the following questions:
The workshop will showcase examples of successful cooperation, useful HubIT project findings and tools, and will offer a space for discussion between the participants.
The workshop is organized in the framework of the 1st Annual Conference of the project HubIT – “The HUB for boosting the Responsibility and inclusiveness of ICT enabled Research and Innovation through constructive interactions with SSH research”, funded by the EU Horizon2020 Coordination and Support Action grant.
