ECHIC Annual Conference 2015

About ECHIC

The European Consortium of Humanities Institutes and Centres will pursue a threefold purpose:

  • To speak up on behalf of members in dialogues with ESF, EU and other funding and policy-making bodies to canvass the need for humanities research; to be able to speak on behalf of the humanities and develop a language for the (position of) humanities institutes in European universities today.

  • To organize an annual humanities conference at a member institution, which would involve all the main partners, including funding and policy-making bodies at the European and the national levels.

  • To establish a network across the EU to lobby for the humanities in Europe today; to prepare collaborative projects and activities and set up an effective networking system with other international networks in the humanities, such as CHCI and others.
