Friends of Europe is part of the consortium for the SSH CENTRE project, the new centre of excellence for the social sciences & humanities (SSH) across the Horizon Europe Cluster 5: Climate, Energy and Mobility. It will bring SSH insights to the fore in transition-related policy and practice to accelerate the EU’s transition towards carbon neutrality.
Supported by 13 leading organisations from across Europe, the project engages directly with stakeholders – including researchers, policymakers, business representatives and citizens – to strengthen social innovation, SSH-STEM collaboration and transdisciplinary policy advice. Issues related to open science, inclusivity and diversity – especially with regards southern and eastern Europe and different career stages – are at the heart of the project.
The SSH CENTRE project aims to ensure that the concerns of citizens aren’t left behind and that SSH thinking is introduced to policymakers working on the European Green Deal.
