IBL PAN, OPERAS, TRIPLE
The European Commission will finance the project TRIPLE (Targeting Researchers through Innovative Practices and multiLingual Exploration) under the Horizon 2020 framework with approx. 5,6 million Euros for a duration of 42 months. TRIPLE will be a dedicated service of the OPERAS research infrastructure and will become a strong service in the EOSC marketplace. TRIPLE will help social sciences and humanities (SSH) research in Europe to gain visibility, to be more efficient and effective, to improve its reuse within the SSH and beyond, and to dramatically increase its societal impact. Work is expected to start this fall.
TRIPLE, the European discovery solution, addresses these issues: it enables researchers to discover and reuse SSH data, but also other researchers and projects across disciplinary and language boundaries. It provides all necessary means to build interdisciplinary projects and to develop large-scale scientific missions. It will thus increase the economic and societal impacts of SSH resources.
TRIPLE develops a full multilingual and multicultural solution for the appropriation of SSH resources. The TRIPLE platform will provide a 360° discovery experience thanks to linked exploration provided by the Isidore search engine developed by CNRS and a coherent solution providing innovative tools to support research (visualisation, annotation, trust building system, crowdfunding, social network and recommender system). TRIPLE imagines new ways to conduct, connect and discover research; it will promote cultural diversity inside Europe; it will support scientific, industrial and societal applications of SSH science; it will connect researchers and projects with other stakeholders: citizens, policy makers, companies, enabling them to take part in research projects or to answer to some of their issues.
The project has a consortium of 18 partners from 12 European countries:
- CESSDA ERIC – NO
- CLARIN ERIC – NL
- CNR – IT
- CNRS (Huma-Num and OpenEdition) – FR
- Coimbra University – PT
- DARIAH ERIC – FR
- EGI – NL
- EKT – EL
- IBL PAN – PL
- Know-Center – AT
- Lexical Computing – CZ
- Max Weber Stiftung – DE
- MEOH – BE
- Net7 – IT
- Nuromedia – DE
- OAPEN – NL
- Open Knowledge Maps – AT
- The University Court of the University of Abertay Dundee – UK
TRIPLE will be coordinated by Suzanne Dumouchel (Huma-Num), Co-coordinator of OPERAS and DARIAH Partnerships and Public Affairs Officer.

Landscape Study on Citizen Science (CS) Funding in Social Science and Humanities (SSH)
This survey addresses all people engaged or willing to engage in citizen science (CS) or participatory research projects involving disciplines from the social sciences and the humanities (SSH) fields. The survey is part of the research conducted by the European COESO Project (https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101006325) on 'Collaborative Engagement on Societal Issues' (Horizon 2020 REF: 101006325). COESO gathers 15 partners from 6 different European countries. One of its main objectives is to work with funders to innovate funding schemes for citizen science in SSH.
A few questions about… the ANTHROPOS Doctoral School
Doctoral programmes in Poland will be replaced by doctoral schools. This change has been introduced by the Law on Higher Education and Science (Law 2.0), also known as the Constitution for Science.
OPERAS launches “Beyond Covid-19”: Call for participation
Beyond Covid-19 is an open access reference library of humanities and social sciences research to support the better understanding of the major changes that societies around the world are experiencing as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Beyond Covid-19 accumulates reading notes which summarize in an accessible way the content of selected publications and further establish their relevance in the current context. The open access reference library is complemented by a Zotero library where bibliographic references of selected publications are stored. The open access reference library is open to contributions from the entire social sciences and humanities research community and is managed by the OPERAS coordination team and volunteers.
