The Value of Social Science & Humanities in Europe

6 December 2018, Brussels, Permanent Representation of the Republic of Slovenia to the EU

The main objective of the conference is to demonstrate the importance of Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH) research for competitiveness of Europe and well-being of its citizens, their contribution in solving main societal challenges and the added value of multidisciplinary research.

The long term objective seeks to ensure that SSH receive the proper recognition in academia and society. Too often governments, European policymakers and research community refer approvingly to the undoubted contributions made by natural sciences, engineering and technology to wealth generation, economic prosperity, knowledge transfer, innovation, and the development of new businesses, products & services, while failing to acknowledge the equally important contributions made by SSH.
