On 17 June 2021, SHAPE-ID was pleased to participate in a panel discussion organised by NOSSH, the Norwegian Network for the promotion of social sciences and humanities in Horizon Europe. SHAPE-ID project manager Doireann Wallace spoke about the project, toolkit and why Arts and Humanities researchers should be confident that they have something to contribute to collaborative research on societal challenges, in a short interview with NTNU’s Erik Ingebrigsten.
Other participants at the event included Tobias Bade Strøm from the Research Council of Norway, who spoke about Horizon Europe opportunities for the Social Sciences and Humanities, and Gabi Lombardo from the European Alliance for Social Sciences and Humanities. SSH researchers who had been successful in leading Horizon 2020 projects, Jan-Paul Brekke (Institute of Social Research) and Professor Christian Klöckner (NTNU), shared their experience and advice, and Professor Aurora Hoel spoke about the new Norwegian SHAPE (Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts for People and the Economy) initiative, which follows the British Academy’s efforts to re-brand and increase the visibility of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
