What is Humanities Spring?

Early Career Researchers Forum

The ESF Standing Committee for the Humanities (HUM (formerly SCH)) played a central role in coordinating existing and emerging transnational networks of scholars and institutions in the humanities. Stakeholders are national and international research funding bodies looking for new contributions to their discussions on strategic choices.

With the series of “Humanities Spring” events, the HUM (formerly SCH) wished to mobilise the creative potential of the next generation of leading humanities scholars to inform European-level coordination and foresight processes regarding research activities in the humanities.
