The UvA-IAS aims to create an open research community. It actively involves international and Dutch partner institutes in its work programme, since the most challenging intellectual and societal issues that face us in the world today require cross-disciplinary and cross-border cooperation.
The UvA-IAS is guest member of the worldwide network of University-Based Institutes for Advanced Study (UBIAS)
Besides that, the institute has established several strategic partnerships:
- Complexity Institute – Nanyang Technological University Singapore
- Complexity Science Hub Vienna
- Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research (KLI)
The strategic partnership policy will be further developed.
