ACDH @ SSH Impact

The ACDH will be represented at the conference “Impact of Social Sciences and Humanities for a European Research Agenda – Valuation of SSH in mission-oriented research”.

In the context of the Austrian EU Council Presidency, the Centre for Social Innovation (ZSI) is organizing the conference “Impact of Social Sciences and Humanities for a European Research Agenda – Valuation of SSH in mission-oriented research” on behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research and the European Commission. The motto of this international event for policy makers and social science and humanities scholars is “Impact reloaded”.

The conference will gather RTI policy makers, RTI councils, public and philanthropic funding agencies, research managers, academics, and evaluators and aims to address issues of valuation and impact generation of SSH in disciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research settings for the benefit of socially more robust RTI policies, RTI processes and RTI solutions to better tackle European challenges and missions.

The ACDH is pleased to be able to participate in this important event by hosting an information booth at the conference venue. Conference contributors and guests will be offered an opportunity to learn about the Austrian efforts in the field of digital humanities as well as the activities of the ACDH in the area of research and infrastructure development.
