Trans-national Co-operation among National Contact Points for Socio-economic Sciences and the Humanities

NET4SOCIETY is the international network of National Contact Points for Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in the 7th European Framework Programme (FP7), including 47 SSH NCPs from European and non-European countries. In the WBC, NCPs from Croatia,  Serbia, Montenegro and Albania are involved in the project.

NET4SOCIETY actively supports networking in the SSH research community and offers improved partner search facilities and matchmaking events for connecting potential project partners in the SSH calls. An analysis of topics in all of the FP7 work programmes helps to identify funding opportunities over and beyond Theme 8 "Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities". Our event calendar informs you about relevant SSH events all over Europe.

The results of the survey will help to draw up recommendations on how to improve conditions for SSH researchers in FP7 and beyond. Participation in the survey therefore presents a unique opportunity for researchers and stakeholders to give feedback to the European Commission.

SSH researchers and stakeholders are invited to register in the new SSH Research Directory of key European and International players, which has been launched in June 2010. By entering their profile, researchers will increase their chances of finding and being found by partners in over 40 countries in Europe and the rest of the world.
