Beginning in 2019, SSHOC will realise the social sciences and humanities part of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) by offering access to research data and related services adapted to the needs of the SSH community. The aim is to facilitate the transition from the current landscape with disciplinary silos and separated e-infrastructure facilities into a fully-fledged cloud-based infrastructure. Thereby, it significantly contributes towards achieving the vision of the European Cloud Initiative and supports the implementation of European Open Science Cloud. The project started on 1 January 2019 and will end on 30 April 2022.
