Trivium –  Tampere Centre for Classical, Medieval and Early Modern Studies, founded October 10th 2006, is a multidisciplinary research centre of The Faculty of Social Sciences at Tampere University. Our purpose is to increase dialogue and encourage study of classical, medieval, and early modern cultures, society, and everyday life. The members of the centre work as historians, philologists, as well as with literature and philosophy.

The researchers of Trivium working at the University of Tampere have been successful in obtaining research funding from elsewhere: during the past ten years, they have received approximately 4 million euros from the Academy of Finland as well as from different trusts and foundations.
