Transforming Research through Innovative Practices for Linked interdisciplinary Exploration

Type of project: European  |  Start date: 01/10/2019  |  End date: 31/03/2023

Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) research is divided across a wide array of disciplines and languages.
While this specialization makes it possible to investigate the extensive variety of SSH topics, it also leads to a fragmentation that prevents SSH research from reaching its full potential.
Use and reuse of SSH research is low, interdisciplinary collaboration possibilities are often missed, and as a result, the societal impact is limited.
TRIPLE, the European discovery solution, addresses these issues: it enables researchers to discover and reuse SSH data, but also to discover other researchers and projects across disciplinary and language boundaries.
It provides all necessary means to build interdisciplinary projects and to develop large-scale scientific missions.
It will thus increase the economic and societal impacts of SSH resources.
Thanks to a consortium of 18 partners, TRIPLE develops a full multilingual and multicultural solution for the appropriation of SSH resources.
The TRIPLE platform provides a 360° discovery experience thanks to the linked exploration provided by the Isidore search engine developed by CNRS and a coherent solution providing innovative tools to support research (visualisation, annotation, trust building system, crowdfunding, social network and recommender system).
TRIPLE imagines new ways to conduct, connect and discover research; it will promote cultural diversity inside Europe; it will support scientific, industrial and societal applications of SSH science; it will connect researchers and projects with other stakeholders: citizens, policy makers, companies, enabling them to take part in research projects or to answer to some of their issues.
TRIPLE will be a dedicated service of OPERAS RI and become a strong service in the EOSC marketplace.
To conclude, TRIPLE will help SSH research in Europe to gain visibility, to be more efficient and effective, to improve its reuse within SSH and beyond and to dramatically increase its societal impact.
