Current state of the debate regarding the role of Social Sciences and Humanities in Research and Innovation in the EU

The role of social sciences and humanities (SSH) in European research and innovation (R&I) has been acknowledged for quite some time now. However, an understanding of this role is changing and evolving through successive Framework Programs. Recently, several policy documents contributing to this debate have been developed and the current brief aims to provide an overview of the topic.

 

The HubIT project has identified four main dimensions through which the role of SSH can be understood:

  • SSH for increasing competitiveness
  • SSH for ensuring that R&I meet societal needs
  • SSH for communicating R&I results through impact
  • SSH for anticipating and driving change
