In June 2021, the NEANIAS and TRIPLE (Transforming Research through Innovative Practices for Linked Interdisciplinary Exploration) Projects signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

The aim is to foster a collaboration between two projects which are financed under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation action funding scheme INFRAEOSC-02-2019 “Prototyping new innovative services”. This makes NEANIAS and TRIPLE two complementary European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) projects in the domain of Open Science.

Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) research is divided across a wide array of disciplines, sub-disciplines, and languages. While this specialisation 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 suboptimal, interdisciplinary collaboration possibilities are often missed, and as a result, societal, economic and academic impacts are limited. TRIPLE, the European discovery platform dedicated to the Social Sciences and Humanities data, researchers and projects, open to the whole scientific community and to other socio-economic actors and citizens, addresses these issues.  The Gotriple platform will enable researchers not only to discover and reuse SSH data, but also to find 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 19 partners, TRIPLE develops a full multilingual and multicultural solution for the discovery and the reuse of SSH resources and will provide a 360° discovery experience due to linked exploration provided by (i)  the Isidore search engine developed by CNRS since 2009, and (ii) variety of connected innovative tools (visualisation, annotation, trust building system, crowdfunding, social network and recommender system).

Considering the fact that NEANIAS and TRIPLE are two initiatives in the field of data research, the MoU is targeted at bilateral information exchange and collaboration. This will benefit the respective goals of both projects, especially in the areas of communication & outreach, dissemination, validation and exploitation activities. It will ultimately help us join forces in our Open Science ambitions.
