Our expertise

We are developing an expertise on social trust and on how it propagates on networks. Since trust is the bedrock of any successful collaboration we also tackle the field of online engagement. And since governance is not limited to formal decision-making but is rooted in informal coordination mechanisms based on trust and social engagement, we study how governance in a networked society could look like.

What we offer

We develop social technologies informed by a SSH-driven approach for responsible research and innovation with the aim to propagate trust horizontally in multi-stakeholder networks. This is relevant for projects that involve:

  • User co-creation 

  • A wide variety of stakeholders

  • An agile framework for trusted interactions

More specifically, we may help

  • Public services to

    • Share best practices within transversal channels of communication 

    • Gather feedback and ease impact assessment with citizens (e.g. smart cities)

    • Bridge the gap between policy makers and citizens in complex environment

  • The scientific community to

    • Use collective intelligence techniques for complex problem solving

    • Develop multi and transdisciplinary collaboration e.g. open science

    • Connect researchers and projects to citizens, policy makers, companies

  • EU funding programs partners with a

    • Networking tool for consortium building and for scouting projects and partners

    • Human-centered design that can provide high qualitative data for data scientists

    • SSH-driven approach for responsible research and innovation e.g. ethics


Our current involvement in EU projects

INFRAEOSC-02-2019 - RIA - Prototyping new innovative services

Triple - SUCCESSFULLY FUNDED - Starting October 1st 2019

TRIPLE is an ongoing Horizon 2020 proposal awarded to a consortium of 18 partners and lead by CNRS.

“TRIPLE imagines new ways to conduct, connect and discover research; it will promote cultural diversity inside Europe ; it will support scientific, industrial and societal applications of social sciences and humanities ; it will connect researchers and projects with other stakeholders: citizens, policy makers, companies, enabling them to take part in research projects or to answer to some of their issues.”

Meoh’s contribution: ‘Trust networks for the SSH community’

To remain effective in a field in deep transition, the Social Science and Humanities community is now required to embrace a multi and transdisciplinary approach that is natively inclusive of new actors. Since these new actors operate under different dynamics, the challenge is to create new channels of cooperation that are more adapted to transversal collaborations. Trusted relationships being the bedrock of any successful cooperation, our proposal is to develop a network architecture and specific incentives with the aim to build trust and foster synergies with various stakeholders within and beyond the SSH community - from traditional scientific partners to new actors such as public services, businesses, and citizens. This new infrastructure of cooperation would help to detect reliable partners with increased outputs in terms of visibility, partnerships, and funding opportunities for SSH researchers.
