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.

Research

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.
Mission
We aim to create new knowledge and develop interdisciplinary methodology to find solutions for complex scientific and societal challenges.
