The aim of T6.5 activities was to provide targeted training events to the SSH community in the form of workshops and webinars. The aim of the events was to maximize the uptake of SSHOC resources and to promote data-driven and cross-disciplinary research directions. Targeted training webinars aimed to complement training workshops. This report concerns training webinars which were conceived as thematically narrower and shorter online events that would precede or follow the workshops, while the workshops were conceptualized as comprehensive and immersive training sessions.
Following D6.2 - SSHOC Community Engagement Strategy and building upon it, the SSHOC project has created this Building Expertise Strategy. It describes an initial plan for the project’s activities and tools to be used in order to build expertise among user communities.
The awareness raising workshops were part of the SSHOC stakeholder engagement and awareness raising activities, aimed towards fostering communities in the Social Sciences and Humanities. The aim of the workshops was to raise awareness on SSHOC services and tools in development, gather feedback from various participants (e.g., data producers, data users, data experts, researchers, research librarians, secure data facility professionals, policy makers and civil society), and to inform project work based on the received feedback.
The awareness-raising webinars were part of the community engaging activities of task 6.2 Fostering Communities: Engaging New & Existing Users. The goal was to inform the community about the development of SSHOC services and tools, consult with the community members, and showcase practical use cases. Webinars were organised in close cooperation with other work packages within the SSHOC project.
Overall, ten awareness webinars took place:
Discussion meeting about requirements of CESSDA Service Providers for a Dataverse repository
The SSHOC stakeholder series aimed to showcase the progress and achievements of the projects and engage with a wider range of SSHOC stakeholders and other European initiatives; to promote the uptake of SSHOC tools, services, and shared data, equip producers, users, and experts with relevant skills and capabilities, and support the collaboration with other initiatives. The events in the series were designed to be cross-stakeholder to maximise the outreach and to foster the dialog and collaboration between SSHOC stakeholders.
The report covers the organisation, delivery, content, and lessons learned from the SSHOC Final Conference, titled “Advancing SSH Research with SSHOCingly good and sustainable resources”. The hybrid conference took place at Bluepoint premises in Brussels, Belgium, on 6 and 7 April 2022.
Task 6.2 and WP2 lead the organisation of the conference with the support of the project partners in the organising and programme committees.
This report gives an overview of the landscape of training material in the SSH disciplines cluster and the broader context of EOSC based on inspecting main existing sources of training materials and their content. The collected information serves as input for further activities in WP6 as well as an important source of information for WP7.
The goal of task 6.3 “Empowering Users: Training Materials and Online Learning Paths” was primarily to provide an overview and to collect existing training materials in the area of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH), as well as to support the creation of training materials within the SSHOC project. The task of inventorising was summarized in a previous deliverable D6.7 Inventory of training materials1.
This deliverable describes the first release of the SSHOC Training Toolkit which was launched on 20 April 2020.
The Toolkit consists of an inventory of both self-learning materials and training materials which trainers in the Social Sciences and Humanities can use to develop and improve their own training activities.
This document describes the progress on carrying out the community engagement activities identified in the SSHOC Community Engagement Strategy (D6.1) under T6.2 and according to the means of verification as per the description of work.
