About ECHIC

ECHIC agrupa a los institutos de investigación, facultades y centros de humanidades de toda Europa y persigue un triple objetivo. En primer lugar, se propone actuar como portavoz de sus miembros en el diálogo con ESF, la UE y otras fuentes de financiación y los responsables de las políticas para plasmar la necesidad de la investigación en humanidades; hablar en nombre de las humanidades y desarrollar un lenguaje para posicionar los institutos de Humanidades en las universidades europeas.

Por otro lado, organiza la reunión anual de humanidades en una de las instituciones miembro, involucrando a todos los principales socios, así como a los agentes financiadores y políticos en los niveles nacionales y europeos. Las anteriores ediciones del encuentro fueron en Oporto (Portugal), Nottingham (Reino Unido), Utrecht (Países Bajos) y Dublín (Irlanda).

Asimismo, trata de establecer una red en toda la UE a modo de lobby de las humanidades en Europa; preparar proyectos colaborativos y actividades y establecer un sistema efectivo de trabajo con otras redes internacionales de humanidades, como CHCI.
