The Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) has published a thematic dossier on the role of the Social Sciences and Humanities in Horizon 2020. The dossier was already published in German in April 2017, and is now also available in English.
The Thematic Dossier focuses on SSH-flagged topics of Horizon 2020. Social Sciences and Humanities have been mainstreamed in Horizon 2020 into the three parts of the Framework Programme. The flagging of SSH-topics was introduced by the Commission to support interdisciplinarity, especially in the Societal Challenges part of Horizon 2020.
The "ERA Thematic Dossiers" provide a consolidated overview of funding activities in the different thematic RTI programmes and initiatives in ERA. This information in complemented by information on related national programmes of the FFG (Austrian Research Promotion Agency). The reports have been jointly drawn up by the FFG's "European and International Programmes" and "EU-Performance Monitoring" divisions and will be developed further.
