In December 2021, the OPERAS Crowdfunding Initiative was launched. The Initiative is a collaboration between the OPERAS Research Infrastructure and the crowdfunding platform wemakeit.com, and it is through the TRIPLE Project that this collaboration is brought to life. Researchers from Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) disciplines are invited to launch a campaign to finance their project ideas. More information can be found on the OPERAS Channel on the wemakeit platform.
