As defined in the SSHOC workplan, task 2.3 SSHOC web presence will cover all activities related to the design, development, roll-out and continuous update of the SSHOC web presence. An evolved SSHOC web platform will ensure a service-oriented approach to the SSHOC marketplace developed in WP7 and will act as the main project entry point providing a multi-view of the SSH landscape, according to the main research lines of the ERICs involved, namely Art and Humanities, Social Science, Linguistics.
The SSHOC web platform will be conceived and structured to ensure visibility and easy access to the technologies and services resulting from WP3, as well as innovations mechanisms in data production (WP4), use cases (WP5) and training materials (WP6), targeting data producers and data re-users in the SSH disciplines, as well as industry players.
The web platform will also serve as main repository for all published content and allow access to project deliverables and external resources. It will have specific sections dedicated to events and workshops; it may contain sections to collect user feedbacks and online surveys. It will be able to optionally host any software repository developed within SSHOC and will provide direct access points to the ERICs websites and other relevant websites, existing catalogues and virtual labs. This task will also provide branding for the Marketplace (WP7) and support to improve its Graphical User Interface (GUI) and end-user friendliness. Specific branding of the new services will also be provided, making their look & feel homogeneous under the SSHOC umbrella.
On 5 July 2019, the SSHOC web platform second release was published, and milestone 4 achieved. This second release of the SSHOC website aims to show the progress the project is making and prepare the website to provide visibility for the upcoming results. This iteration also paints the EOSC ecosystem and SSH landscape in which SSHOC operates. This document describes the achievement of SSHOC Milestone 4.
