From January 2019 to April 2022 SSHOC transformed the current social sciences & humanities data landscape with its disciplinary silos and separate facilities into an integrated, cloud-based network of interconnected data infrastructures.

To continue to break down the silos and ensure the sustainability of our developed resources in the long run, the growing consortium has agreed to continue to collaborate under the SSHOC Memorandum of Understanding, to enhance mutual interaction, build upon and expand existing synergies and expertise, and support sharing of know-how in all areas of common interest.

The overall objective is to establish the SSH Open Cluster as an instrument of further collaboration between different SSH community stakeholders taking an active role in promoting the quality and impact of SSH within the European Research Area and beyond.

To showcase this unity beyond the project lifetime, the consortium is expanding on its already established project branding with a sustainable branding as the SSH Open Cluster.
