Keynote address of Prof. Leijf Moos, Aarhus University – Coordinator of the European Alliance for Social Science and Humanities (EASSH) – during the Annual Conference of the European Consortium for Humanities Institutes and Centres (ECHIC), University of Navarra, Spain.

The ECHIC is a university-based initiative to organise European Research Institutes, Humanities Faculties and Centres for the Humanities. The theme of their 2015 annual conference revolved around the issue of “civic humanities” with a focus on aspects of the humanities related to human capacity to create commonality, and that of financing humanities’ research at a time where public resources for research and development are scarce.
