Este artículo explora la participación de los investigadores de humanidades y ciencias sociales (HHCCSS) en diferentes actividades no institucionales de interacción. Para ello, se utiliza la información sobre la participación de una muestra de investigadores pertenecientes al área de HHCCSS del Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) en distintas actividades de interacción con agentes sociales. Además de poner de relieve en qué medida los investigadores de HHCCSS participan en diversas actividades no institucionales de interacción, se analiza cómo varían estas interacciones en función de la categoría científica del investigador y del tipo de agente social. Los resultados obtenidos son de interés para el enfoque futuro de las acciones de fomento de las interacciones ciencia-sociedad en esta área.
