The Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) project contributes to the development of the SSH part of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). One of the tasks in SSHOC that DANS is involved in is creating a network of trainers and training professionals operating in the SSH field. To make it easier to find information about trainers, a database has been launched where trainers and experts can be listed and easily found and approached.
The directory supports trainers in gaining visibility and promoting their offer of training activities, helps training activities and event organizers to find and approach qualified, and experienced speakers/trainers create a powerful network of professionals, facilitates the contribution of expert knowledge, and connects people worldwide.
A trainer listed in the directory can be approached by registering on the SSHOC webpage. Trainers can apply to be listed in the directory and need to fulfil a set of criteria including a description of relevant training activities. The directory has started with a list of 15 trainers including members of the DANS training team and trainers in the SSH fields are highly encouraged to register and join the directory.
