‘The Humanities Play a Role in Shaping Culture’ – An Interview with HERA Network Chair, Dr Wojciech Sowa

Posted: 11 March, 2017

Dr Sowa, why do we need an instrument such as HERA to promote research in the humanities at European level?

With 24 organisations in 23 countries, HERA is now a key funding instrument for the humanities at the transnational level in Europe. The projects that HERA has set in motion cover a wide range of topics and academic fields. Nonetheless, HERA achieves so much more than simply developing new programmes and financing projects. We also serve as a platform for dialogue between the ‘modern humanities’ and the ‘traditional disciplines’.
