The societal impact of the Humanities

The Centre for the Humanities (CfH) focuses on the societal impact of research and education within the Humanities. As a discussion platform, facilitator and catalyst, the CfH wants to relate innovative research activities to broader societal impact, and fulfil the role of intermediary between the faculty community and the city and region. With a diverse programme, the CfH focuses in the period 2017/2019 on the main topic Impact. In addition, the CfH also contributes to the strategic pillar of the Utrecht University: diversity.
