Who we are

 

The Institute of Historical Research | National Hellenic Research Foundation


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. 

Project SOW is implemented in two phases: Phase A from the year 2016 to 2019, and Phase B from the year 2020 to 2023.
