Scientific Crowdfunding in the Social Sciences and Humanities

Can crowdfunding be a viable way for SSH research? Grasp the benefits of crowdfunding for SSH research at the next TRIPLE ThatCamp!

What are your first thoughts when you hear about crowdfunding in Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH)? The term “scientific crowdfunding” mainly evokes images of researchers from the natural sciences, medicine or technical sciences while  highly profiled and publicly visible crowdfunding campaigns from the SSH rarely exist. In the SSH the full potential of generating funds is still to be explored. 


What is a ThatCamp?

A ThatCamp (The Humanities and Technology Camp) is an “unconference”, a spontaneous gathering without a planned thematic agenda. The ThatCamp #2 is meant to provide a forum to share concepts, strategies of crowdfunding as well as discuss the potential for crowdfunding in the SSH. The event is an opportunity to learn from each other, brainstorm together, identify roadblocks, raise concerns and dream up solutions on a peer-to-peer level. Join us to explore and discuss the depths of scientific crowdfunding!

How does a ThatCamp work?

The event is free of charge and will be hosted using Zoom for video conferencing and Miro, a virtual collaborative whiteboard tool. Participants are encouraged to produce written and/or graphic materials to document their ideas. TRIPLE will share these with the community by publishing them on Zenodo and the TRIPLE website, as well as spreading them through social media. We draw from them to provide proof of the community’s desires, and advocate for getting the needs met.

Session formats are defined by the participants, i.e. the session leaders. Whether they are currently working on a project, article or talk, and would like others to join writing a draft paper collaboratively, or have a story to share on which they’d like to hear other participants’ opinions, or like to put a problem up for discussion and look for solutions together – whatever it is, everyone is invited to submit a suggestion. At the beginning of the event, those willing to lead a session will be invited to pitch their idea (30-60 seconds, depending on the number of suggestions), and participants will then vote on the topics that will actually find their way onto the agenda.
