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.

It will encourage secure environments for sharing and using sensitive and confidential data, will contribute to the Open Science agenda and the realisation of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

More information can be found on the SSHOC website.


LIBER’s Role

LIBER is leading activities related to the fostering of communities, empowering of users and building of expertise. These include workshops, webinars and a final conference. We are also involved in communications, lifting technologies and services into the SSH Cloud and governance & sustainability.

Our involvement in SSHOC relates to the Research Infrastructure section of our 2018-2022 Strategy.
