Followed by several meetings of the OpenAIRE-Advance and EOSC Hub teams at Ruđer Bošković Institute , a seminar on “Cooperation in Social Sciences and Humanities in a Networked European Research Space” was held at the Teleconference Hall on Thursday, March 29, 2018.

Four European projects in the field of humanities and social sciences – DARIAH-HR, CESSDA, OpenAIRE-Advance and EOSC Hub – were presented at the seminar. Special emphasis has been placed on the advanced computer services and tools developed to support open scientific space in the social sciences. The seminar was attended by 26 participants from 11 different institutions within Croatia.

The goal of better cooperation within social and humanistic research communities has been achieved and accepted proposals for holding future meetings with different topics related to the improvement of the collaboration among different projects and empowering researchers from the social sciences and humanities in Croatia.
