The following report presents the results of a study aiming to evaluate the contribution of the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) parts of the Framework Programme on the European Research Area (ERA) in SSH. It covers research carried out in the 3rd call of the Socio-economic Research Key Action of the 5th Framework Programme as well as the "Citizens and Governance in a Knowledge-Based Society" part of the 6th Framework Programme. The study examined the impacts of these programmes in four domains: the research policies for SSH in Member States; the structuring effects of the new instruments; the importance of the support for research infrastructures in the context of the SSH programme; and the impact of the programme on the careers of participating researchers.
