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.

Evaluation

Proposals that are submitted under SSH Flagged Topics 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)

Autoship - a new and durable way of freight transport

Autoship is, as the name suggests, an acronym for autonomous ship. Just like with self-driving cars, the possibilities of an unmanned boat seem endless. It can create more efficient freight transport, around the clock deliveries and these are just a few of the examples. The project has two societal challenges.

At first, De Vlaamse Waterweg was a bit hesitant as their experience with FP7 or Horizon 2020 projects was limited and they had not been very successful up until then. The fact that they were already doing basic research on the topic of autonomous boats, and the administrative help of NCP FLanders helped De Vlaamse waterweg to cross the line and get involved.
