HERA (Humanities in the European Research Area) is a network of European funding organisations dedicated to creating new opportunities for innovative, transnational research in the humanities. By supporting a range of activities, including research programmes, conferences, workshops and advocacy, HERA promotes the value of the humanities for society and for policy-making. HERA has been active since 2002. 

The vision of HERA is to be the voice for European humanities:

  • to be the reference in international humanities, both in funding as in research collaboration;
  • to achieve the integration of humanities’ viewpoints into national and European research agendas;
  • to inform policy making about the vital contributions humanities bring to societal issues;
  • to strengthen the role of humanities research in public debates.

The HERA Network consists of 26 national research funding organisations from 25 participating European countries, and has a strong vision for 2018-2022.
