Welcome to the SSH Training Community!

We’re a worldwide community of trainers who collaborate to improve our professional capabilities by sharing our expertise and resources. 

Our focus is on trainers serving the Social Sciences and Humanities communities. Our activities are centred around tools and services which are offered through the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and are valuable for SSH trainers.  

By bringing together experts from multiple disciplines, we are looking to create synergies and exploit our collective knowledge and skills for mutual benefit.
