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.

ANNOUNCEMENT: CANCELATION OF SUMMER SCHOOLS 2020 IHR/NHRF
Due to the emergency of the CoViD-19 that has developed in the past weeks in Greece and worldwide, the Institute of Historical Research of the National Hellenic Research Foundation has decided to cancel the Summer School in Byzantine Script and Book Culture (22-27/6/2020) and the Summer School on Ancient Greek and Roman Numismatics (1-10/7/2020) that were to take place in the summer of 2020.
The acceleration of the epidemic, the increasingly restrictive measures announced by the authorities and the overall disruption to travel and economy obliged us to take this decision to protect the health of the participants and the population at large.
Both summer schools are being rescheduled for the summer 2021.
