SSHOC is the most human-centric cluster in the European Open Science Cloud and as such we value our community deeply.


More than 100 participants from the 47 partner organisations were present at SSHOC's Kick-off Meeting so we took the opportunity and asked our partners what we should expect from the Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud.

Watch below the answers from CESSDA director and SSHOC coordinator Ron Dekker; executive director of CLARIN-ERIC Franciska de Jong; the co-director of DARIAH Frank Fischer, leading the development of the SSHOC Marketplace; the executive director of LIBER Astrid Verheusen.

Enjoy the watch!
