A temporary alliance of universities in countries called ‘leading in SSH’ by the European Commission, found that there is a strong consensus amongst the European institutions about the need to strengthen SSH research and improve its integration in FP9. In other words, there is a vision. To help the European Commission to define the actions needed to implement this vision, the authors jointly make five recommendations.

A pdf version of the position paper with the recommendations is available for download.

The FP9 consultation is open until 8 March. In your answer to question 42, you could add  “Please note that we support the Joint call to the EU regarding SSH in FP9” (http://www.ugent.be/ssh-call).
