Horizons for Social Sciences and Humanities: The Vilnius Declaration

Earlier this week (September 23-24) the Lithuanian Presidency of the EU Council held an international conference on the “Horizons for Social Sciences and Humanities“ in Vilnius. Participants discussed the ways to address the most pressing global challenges and to define the roles of social sciences and humanities in the future European research and innovation strategies. A major objective of the conference was to foster relations between social sciences and humanities and other fields of science and research policy in the context of the next EU Research programme, ‘Horizon 2020‘. The lively discussion was tracked on Twitter (#horizonsSSH). The meeting ended  with the Vilnius Declaration – “Horizons for Social Sciences and Humanities”
