Strengthening the role that Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) have on the ERA Development
Co-ordinator: International Environment and Quality Services North Greece Ltd.
Client: European Commission, DG Research
Duration: January 2008 – July 2010
PLATON+ aims to catalyze dissemination of the European research in Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) as well as to capitalize SSH research results and assets across non-SSH research areas / themes. The proposed project will operate as a central hub for the dissemination of SSH research so as to (a) facilitate integration and coordination of SSH (-related) research under FP7 and to (b) exploit horizontally the competences of European SSH researchers for the benefit of European research.
Under this context, the project will systematically deploy a set of diversified dissemination & valorisation actions that will enhance the integration of the SSH research community in non-SSH themes and are expected to have a long lasting effect, well beyond the projectâ€™s lifetime. PLATON+ activities target 4 -priority groups: Research community, Policy / decision makers (European, national, regional), Business community and CSOs.
PLATON+ differentiates from existing similar / complementary projects by setting its center of gravity in: (i) The wide use of a variety of the latest information and communication applications which are integrated in its web-portal. The latter is expected to operate as a â€˜Virtual Knowledge Hubâ€™ for SSH research stakeholders. (ii) The systematic collaboration with complementary and similar projects. (iii) Stimulating collaboration with FP6-CITIZENS & FP7-SSH research projects and highly experienced and networked SSH organizations.
