Who we are

The Institute of Historical Research / NHRF

The Institute of Historical Research is one of the three institutes that constitute the National Hellenic Research Foundation in Athens, Greece. It was formed in 2012 from the development of the three former humanities institutes of the National Hellenic Research Foundation (KERA, IBR and INR), the oldest Greek research institutions on historical and philological sciences. Its research activities focus on the creation and dissemination of new knowledge, as well as the training of younger researchers, thus contributing decisively to national self-awareness and international scientific cooperation in the scientific fields it serves. The Director of IHR/NHRF is Prof. Taxiarchis Kolias.
