About

The EvalHum project was initiated by two humanities researchers from the University of South Brittany in the west of France and is currently being run in collaboration with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Institute - Maison des Sciences de l'Homme en Bretagne.  Their experience as heads of departments and as former Pro Vice Chancellors led them to realise the necessity of promoting humanities research by the creation of appropriate evelauation and funding schemes. They have recently founded a consultancy as Williams and Galleron Consultants specialising in building strategies for humanities and social science research.

Professor Geoffrey Williams is a linguist and lexicographer and is a former president of the European Association for Lexicography - EURALEX. He is the former Pro Vice Chancellor for International Relations of the University of South Brittany and as such has developed a particular interest in rankings and their application to the social sciences and the humanities. He is currently director of the department for document management and of the LiCoRN research group. Professor Williams has published widely in his field and is a member of numerous academic societies. He is a member of EARMA - European Association of Research Managers and Administrators.
