International Projects

Theorizing and individual activities are crucial parts of the scientific work but the ultimate goal of science itself is to be shared and practically applied. However, when it comes to that, usually, there are many obstacles for the scientist to overcome. These are to create a team, to find funding for the project, to receive quality feedback and last but not the least, to communicate his work to the rest of the scientific world. All these factors could be seen as impossible to solve and really demotivating, especially for young practitioners with less experience. Our sincere advice for you is to look up for the raising number of international projects and universities programmes that the European Union and our partners university provides.

We attempt to support and promote scientists, to help them realize and achieve their aspirations. In order to do that, we invite some of the world’s most important and eminent scientist, scholars and practitioners. Therefore, participating in our conferences will open the possibility for you to meet and to socialize with you future colleagues.
You are welcome to become part of the SWS Society!

Horizon 2020

Research Fund for Coal and Steel

The Research Fund for Coal and Steel supports research projects in coal and steel sectors. Every year around €55 million (€47.7 million for 2015) is made available to universities, research centres and private companies to fund projects.

The Society, with its diverse membership of more than 15,000 scientists in the arts, humanities, social sciences, earth and planetary sciences, is well positioned to express the reason why the international scientific partnership is important for all of us in world-wide, and to recommend ways to overcome barriers to the success of such cooperation. The growing diversity of the international scientific membership is an important asset for this initiative.

We welcome everyone who wants to enjoy the magical symbiosis of all fields of Science! Become our partner and enrich your research experience in cooperation with other scientists no matter if you are devoted to “Earth & Planetary Sciences” or “Social Sciences, Humanities & Arts”.
