The international network of University-Based Institutes for Advanced Study (UBIAS) initiated the Intercontinental Academia where ‘scientific exchange’ between generations, disciplines, cultures and continents takes place around a topic or theme.


The call is now open for the 3rd UBIAS Intercontinental Academia (ICA) Laws: Rigidity and Dynamics in Singapore March 19-28, 2018 and Birmingham March 2019. The call is open until August 15

The ICA seeks to create a global network of future research leaders by constructing an arena in which the very best early/mid-career scholars will work together on paradigm-shifting cross-disciplinary research, mentored by some of the most eminent researchers from across the globe.  We have already recruited most of the mentor group, including several Nobel Laureates. The theme Laws: Rigidity and Dynamics has been selected to provide a forum and framework for the intellectual exchange.

The ICA team now seeks to recruit outstanding early/mid-career researchers, normally within 15 years of achieving their PhD, who hold a research post in academia  equivalent to academic post of Lecturer or above, or an individual Principal Investigator Fellowship. The Institute of Advanced Studies will cover the cost of participation of successful UoB applicants.
