About us

Founded in 2001, the Helsinki Collegium has established itself as a creative and inspiring researcher community and environment, with time for research and researcher interaction and room for a range of researcher roles. The Collegium is the first institute of its kind in Finland and a pioneer in facilitating innovative interdisciplinary research and international research cooperation. You may find more detailed information below on life at the Collegium and on the Collegium's mission and administrative structure.

The HCAS belongs to several international networks connecting IAS and humanities institutes worldwide.

"I can confirm, HCAS truly is a great place to rediscover your scholarly habits and to (re-)lay the foundations for a research programme." 

(Jo Shaw, EURIAS Senior Fellow at HCAS 2017-2018, former director of IASH Edinburgh)
