About us

Our Identity

The Research Centre for the Humanities (RCH) was established in Athens, Greece. It has started to function on January 1, 2015 and its legal status is a Non-Profit Organization. The main purpose of the Research Centre for the Humanities is the funding of research in the humanities through a process of annual public calls for the submission of research proposals.

What we do

Funding of research in the humanities

The cornerstone of any well planned strategy for research and development is to provide further research opportunities to outstanding young scholars who have already received their doctorates.


Articulation of an agenda for the multifarious significance of the humanities

This is an almost axiomatic position, its details being continuously re-assessed by policy makers all around the world. People who have received their doctorates and are willing to continue their research activities should be given such a prospect


Public discussion and further dissemination of research results

And though such an approach is being implemented for the biological, health, physical and engineering sciences, and to a certain extent for some of the social sciences
