The Committee of Historical Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences was established in the 1950s and gathers most renowned and distinguished historians affiliated with Polish universities and institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

Academic traditions of Poznań go back to the 16th century. The university was established in 1919, after regaining independence by Poland. Today, Adam Mickiewicz university, next to the University of Warsaw and The Jagiellonian University, is one of the biggest and best institutions of higher education in Poland.


IMPORTANT CHANGE: The organizers have extended the deadline for submission of applications to October 15! The announcement of the list of institutions qualified for the Research Forum was postponed to October 31. Research Forum is a new initiative of the Board of the International Committee of Historical Sciences (ICHS). During the XXIII International Congress of Historical Sciences in Poznań in 2020, the Forum will be held for the first time. The main purpose of the Research Forum is to allow research institutions (or institutions that support research) to present their ongoing or planned projects. By taking part in the Research Forum, you will be able to inform both scholars of established reputation and beginner researchers about your activity. The Research Forum will thus create the possibility of establishing cooperation between researchers, PhD students, and institutions supporting research. It will be also possible to recruit new collaborators to your already implemented projects.
