Helsinki institute for Social Sciences and Humaniteis promotes, coordinates and supports multidisciplinary research cooperation in social sciences and humanities. We are building a new, interdisciplinary research culture that creates the conditions for new research openings and promotes the renewal of content and methodology in the SSH research areas. The aim is to improve the national and international visibility and social impact of social sciences and humanities at the University of Helsinki. We develop the skills and perspectives of the SSH industries to understand and solve the great challenges facing humanity.
