SHOUT- Social Sciences and Humanities Sustainable Innovations

 

SHOUT will create new opportunities for Social Sciences and Humanities where students, recently graduates young professionals and researchers will work together with practitioners from SMEs and NGOs to develop solutions and generate value for civil society, public policy, business and service industries. In a broader socio-economic environment, there is a lack of understanding around usefulness of Social Sciences and Humanities on different levels and among different actors.

This problem is coming from both sides: companies and 3rd sector organizations often do not see the benefit in hiring Social Sciences and Humanities graduates or consulting with Social Sciences and Humanities researchers, while graduates hardly know how to sell themselves even though they are critical when building sustainable innovations and the skills they require are at the most demand. This paradox needs to be broken.
