About

As in Horizon 2020, the integration of Social Science and Humanities (SSH) remains a principle throughout the Horizon Europe Programme especially in all the clusters, including missions and partnerships. Global challenges are very complex and cannot be solved by one disciplines but often require a collaboration between different disciplines. The disciplines in Social Science and Humanities (a list of SSH disciplines can be consulted on page 20 and 21 of the Horizon Europe Programme Guide) can play an very important role in resolving these complex challenges. Hence, when relevant contributions from Social Sciences and Humanities should be included in the proposals.

Where to find SSH topics?

Horizon Europe calls where contributions from the Social Sciences and Humanities are strongly encouraged or needed will be flagged and can be found on the Funding & Tenders Portal.

Net4Society has also compiled a document that provides an overview of all the calls in Horizon Europe under the current available works programmes that could be relevant for researchers from the Social Sciences and Humanities.

Evaluation

Proposals that are submitted under SSH Flagged Topics or call topics where SSH contribution is expected will be evaluated for their SSH contribution in the proposal. The experts will first refer to the topic description to identify what the expected SSH contributions are. With this in mind, they will evaluate the contributions from SSH in the proposal, according to the criteria. A proposal without a sufficient contribution/integration of SSH research and competences will receive a lower evaluation score so make sure to pay enough attention to this aspect in the proposal.

More information on the integration of Social Sciences and Humanities can also be found in the Horizon Europe Programme Guide (p.20-21)

ROOT - Rolling Out OSNMA for the secure synchronization of Telecom networks

The ROOT project obtained funding under Horizon 2020 topic ‘EGNSS applications fostering societal resilience and protecting the environment’. The project, which ran from November 2020 to July 2022,  aimed to demonstrate the benefit of Galileo OSNMA signal to increase the robustness of critical telecom infrastructures.

The Flanders-based company Septentrio contributed substantially to completing this objective together with the other ROOT partners. The results of the project partially close a gap in the security of telecommunication networks dependent on satellite-derived time, with indirect benefits in curbing illegal attempts to disrupt network services.
