Institute of Historical Research

The Institute of Historical Research of the National Hellenic Research Foundation (IHR/NHRF) conducts research on the political, economic, social and cultural history of Greek and Roman Antiquity, Byzantium and modern Hellenism. The Institute emerged in 2012 from the merging of the three former Humanities research institutes of the NHRF (KERA, IBR and INR), the oldest research institutions for historical and philological sciences in Greece.

The Institute's research objectives are the historical documentation and interpretation, the diffusion of new knowledge, and the training of young scholars, thus contributing to national self-awareness and active presence in the international scientific community.
