Fellowship programme
A fellowship gives you the time and space to focus on a challenging interdisciplinary research topic. You will collaborate in an inspiring setting with other IAS fellows and researchers. Join us!

IAS community

The IAS is, above all, its people. The community includes e.g. research fellows, external faculty, working group members, researchers in residence and a small team of staff.


We use an integrated system's approach to study what kind of interventions will produce what type of outcome in complex challenges like health, the energy transition, and social inequality.

Talent development, courses

We are committed to investing in the development of the next generation interdisciplinary researchers and actively engage young talent. Besides that, we are involved in various courses, including executive training.
Join us
As a researcher or student you can get involved with the IAS in various ways. We also collaborate with partners from industry and the public sector to get a grip on complex challenges.
