Institute for Advanced Study (IAS)


The Institute for Advanced Study is, above all, its people. By bringing together passionate researchers and giving them the time and space to interact, we aim to create the right conditions for new ideas to flourish.

The IAS community consists of renowned researchers who are leaders in their fields, as well as talented early-career academics. Researchers from the University of Amsterdam form our base, contributing to and benefitting from the Institute in various ways.

What IAS researchers all have in common is an inquisitive, creative mind, and an enormous drive to work on the big challenges that mankind faces in science and society. In their pursuit of new knowledge they are not afraid to colour outside the lines.
