The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS)

The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS) has two important aims: to foster advanced research in the humanities and social sciences, and to encourage interdisciplinary scholarly cooperation in an international setting. This is a unique combination of tasks.

NIAS awards residential fellowships to some fifty leading Dutch and foreign scholars every year. In addition to scholars engaged in individual research projects, NIAS also runs a number of multidisciplinary programmes focusing on specific research themes and involving both Dutch and foreign scholars. NIAS offers its Fellows an environment that encourages cross-fertilisation between disciplines and intellectual creativity. It is precisely such cross-fertilisation that leads to the best results. NIAS also makes conference and workshop facilities available.
