Knowledge databases: access to project results

The development of new and improved databases, tools and indicators is an important objective of the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) Programme under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

The enhanced databases are able to be accessed by researchers, policy-makers and other interested stakeholders. Each database contains an integrated set of networking tools that allows knowledge produced in the SSH area to be shared, managed and disseminated. The aim is make know-how available to researchers in order to encourage the use of existing information and publications of all types on the Internet (e.g. bibliographic management, glossaries, directories, and forum).

The goal is to ensure better visibility of scientific activity, monitor its development, and bring together all available resources from a single entry point (i.e. after they have been validated, commented on and organised).

These multidisciplinary databases and journals cover many subject areas, and both individual and combined searches are possible. The selection is grouped under the following headings:

  1. Knowledge economy databases, tools and indicators
  2. Social databases, labour markets and indicators
  3. Demographic and migration databases and statistics
  4. Impact assessment, modelling and sustainable development
