SSH Integration
Monitoring SSH integration still matters
This EASSH position paper is a reflection on the Final Monitoring Report on the Integration of SSH in H2020. We have endeavoured to improve the integration of SSH in Horizon Europe thanks to the evidence, data, and analysis that both the European Commission and EASSH developed during the implementation of Horizon 2020. As we are now observing the implementation of the current programme, EASSH wishes to revisit lessons learnt and reflect on how these could help the European Framework Programme 10 (FP10).

Framework Programme
EASSH feedback to ERAC task force on FP10
EASSH’s guiding principle for FP10 must be to fund research that supports a sustainable and social Europe, where the costs of living are affordable, with adequate pensions and access to care, and where cultural values, human dignity, and education are guaranteed to all.

Horizon Europe
EASSH Response to the European Commission Consultation on Horizon Europe
This paper is the feedback collected from our 70 members. The consultation collected the views of 100s of research institutions, businesses, consumer organisations, as well as non-governmental organisations, public authorities, and other stakeholders.

SSH Integration
SSH Integration in Horizon Europe and its Missions
In this contribution, EASSH makes a plea for a better understanding of the SSH research contribution and demonstrates that the Missions have so far failed to ensure that an inclusive mechanism is in place. We hope that the second call for experts can identify some good academic profiles to be included.

Horizon 2020
SSH integration in Horizon 2020: Lessons for Horizon Europe
EASSH recommends four crucial steps: 1) A European Social Platform needs to be established to complement the existing 41 ETPs to create efficient communication between the SSH community and the EC, which EASSH would be happy to host 2) Co-design of calls & topics (here also a trusted ETP platform for structural consultation and SSH input in the process would be highly valuable) 3) Clear evaluation criteria to make the SSH component compulsory in flagged topics 4) Panels of experts from different disciplinary backgrounds across the whole programme.

Mission Covid-19: Global problems need a research portfolio approach
EASSH calls for European policymakers and funding agencies to ensure that all domains of research are mobilised to address the challenges of Covid-19, using a mission-type “portfolio approach” of projects and disciplines.
