Synergies for Europe’s Research Infrastructures in the Social Sciences (SERISS), aims to equip Europe’s social science data infrastructures to play a major role in addressing the key societal challenges facing Europe today and ensure that national and European policy making is built on a solid base of the highest-quality socio-economic evidence.

The project brings together leading European Research Infrastructures in the social sciences – the European Social Survey (ESS ERIC), the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE ERIC) and Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives (CESSDA AS) – alongside organisations representing the Generations and Gender Programme (GGP)European Values Study (EVS) and the WageIndicator Survey. It aims to exploit potential synergies and overcome existing fragmentation across infrastructures in order to enhance the key role played by these infrastructures, which form the bedrock of empirical social science in Europe.

Funding: the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 654221.
