Humanities data cloud planned

A group of research organisations will join to create a European open cloud-computing infrastructure for social sciences and humanities research.

Work to establish the Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud will start in January 2019, the Association of European Research Libraries, Liber, announced on 20 September. Liber will work on the SSHOC alongside universities, research centres and infrastructure organisations. Nearly 20 organisations will form the cloud’s core group.

“Funded under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Framework programme, SSHOC will make data, tools and training available and accessible for users of SSH data,” Liber said. SSHOC, it added, will help enable secure sharing of sensitive data, and will contribute to the European Open Science Cloud—an EU-backed project with very similar aims to the SSHOC but which covers all disciplines.
