Synergy Conference 2017

'Creating common ground for the social sciences and humanities'

On 16 November 2017 NWO Domain SSH organises for the first time this conference for researchers in the social sciences and humanities. The theme is dialogue and synergy.

The NWO Domain SSH, launched on 1 January 2017, supports all the research disciplines within the social sciences and humanities. The new structure offers opportunities for inspiring new networks and collaboration as well as new directions for policy and strategy. But how can SSH research benefit from this situation and how can synergy be achieved within the domain? And what should NWO do to support and facilitate all this?

Programme

The programme offers opportunities to become acquainted with members of the Board of NWO Domain SSH and share ideas about topical issues in parallel sessions. How do we assess applicants and proposals from more than 40 research areas within one domain? How do we improve effectiveness and success rates in assessing and selecting applications? Please join us to discuss this on 16 November.

The programme includes a keynote lecture by Prof. Chad Gaffield, distinguished University Professor at the University of Ottawa in Canada and former President of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

At the end of the day, Prof. Stan Gielen, President of the NWO Executive Board will join us to bring the day to a close. English will be the official language.
