The Scottish Arts and Humanities Alliance (SAHA) was established in 2019 to give a public and collective voice to the arts and humanities in the context of Higher Education.

Scotland has a rich arts and humanities heritage and an impressive history of arts and humanities education. We believe that the arts and humanities are a public good with a central role to play in meeting the challenges of contemporary society.

SAHA is uniquely positioned to give voice to the value and diversity of Arts and Humanities education in Scotland and to foster further collaboration across and beyond institutions in order to provide a coherent perspective on the challenges facing Scottish society.

SAHA works in the context of SHAPE, STEAM and internationally with partners in the Irish, European and North American Humanities alliances. The Alliance aims to enhance public and governmental understanding of the intellectual, creative and social, as well as economic, contribution of the arts and humanities to the well-being and advancement of Scottish society.

The Alliance has the following remit:

  • To be a united, public voice on matters relating to the arts and humanities in Scotland.
  • To advocate for the arts and humanities, enhancing understanding of their intellectual, creative, and social as well as economic, contribution to the wellbeing and advancement of Scottish society.
  • To influence government policy on current higher educational issues relating to the arts and humanities, giving a Scottish perspective, but also speaking to wider debates.
  • To create, foster and enhance links and partnerships between scholars and local communities and communities of practice.
  • To disseminate its work in the media, in government and within the education sector.

The Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences (SAHS) is the umbrella organization of 61 learned societies. Whether in literature or theology, in communication sciences or in political sciences, its member societies represent a whole variety of disciplines. In total, no fewer than 30,000 people are members of a learned society associated with the SAHS, making it the largest network in the humanities and social sciences in Switzerland.

Research promotion, international cooperation and the promotion of young academics – these have been the main concerns of the SAHS since its foundation in 1946. As an institution of research funding recognised by the Federal Confederation, the Academy is currently involved in four central thematic areas: 

Networking

The SAHS serves as a platform for the realisation of joint projects and for the dissemination of research results within the scientific community. Its role as a "mediator" between the disciplines is also of great importance.

Promotion of the humanities and social sciences

The SAHS allocates a large part of its budget to the promotion of activities in the humanities and social sciences in our country. As far as possible, it pursues a funding policy that focuses on the promotion of young academics in research.

Outreach

The SAHS regularly organizes public conferences and panel discussions on current topics. It thus emphasizes the contribution of its disciplines to the analysis of important social challenges and promotes dialogue with politics and business.

Infrastructures in the humanities and social sciences

The SAHS is responsible for various long-term projects. These provide an important research infrastructure for the humanities and social sciences and make a substantial contribution to the preservation, communication and development of Switzerland's collective memory.

Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences

The SAHS is a member of the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences. The Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences network the sciences regionally, nationally and internationally. They are particularly active in the fields of foresight, ethics and advocate dialogue between science and society.

Established in 1927 as Roomsch Katholieke Handelshoogeschool (Roman Catholic Business School), we have now, nearly a century later, grown into a thriving, medium-sized, multi-disciplinary university oriented towards the humanities and social sciences.

We are alert and responding to challenges posed by a world in a state of flux. We educate our students to become the leaders of the future: engaged academics who are of significance to society and reflect on their role in it. We are a safe and inclusive community where our students and staff recognize and value each other.

As education, research, and our environment connect, knowledge grows and evolves. Four core values inspire us on our journey to our first centennial: Curious, Caring, Connected, and Courageous.

Understanding Society

At Tilburg University, we seek to study and understand society and in this way we contribute to solving complex societal issues. That is what drives us. And we achieve it through state-of-the-art knowledge in the disciplines of economics, business studies, and entrepreneurship, the social and behavioral sciences, law and public governance, the humanities and digital sciences, and theology.

From 1850, QCC was part of the Queen's University of Ireland and, from the 1880s, of the Royal University of Ireland. QCC grew during that that time, adding land and buildings, increasing student numbers and developing deep links throughout Munster and into the world beyond. By the beginning the twentieth century however, it was clear that higher education in Ireland required a new arrangement to permit the next stages of development. That change came in 1908 through the National University of Ireland (NUI), of which the former QCC, now University College Cork (UCC) is a founding member.  Since 1908, UCC has grown - from 115 students to over 20,000, from one building to dozens, from less than 20 staff to more than 1,600 today. Since 1997, we have become a university in our own right within the NUI, but we retain the UCC name as part of our heritage of learning since 1845.

We’re an award-winning institution with a history of independent thinking stretching back over 170 years. UCC is proud to be ranked in the top 2% of universities in the world. Our beautiful university opened its gates to just 115 students in 1849. We now have a student population of over 21,000.
