UBIAS Networks

The University-Based Institutes for Advanced Study (UBIAS), new organization established at the initiative of the Freiburg Institute of Advanced Studies (Germany), has created a new network of research institutes that will promote cross-border affiliations and personnel exchanges. Through our activities as a member of this group, in addition to promoting international cooperation, we will seek to enhance both the attractiveness to researchers offered by our Institute and the international stature earned by our researchers.


UBIAS stands for “University-Based Institutes for Advanced Study”. Unlike traditional Institutes for Advanced Study, UBIAS are associated with or embedded within a university, and actively contribute to the academic culture and the scientific achievements of their home university. By offering various fellowship programmes on different academic levels (junior and senior researchers), UBIAS institutes bring together outstanding researchers from different disciplines, nationalities and academic backgrounds, creating a productive environment for innovative research. These common characteristics have proved to be a fruitful basis for mutual exchange, although the individual institutes display a large variety of different concepts and academic pursuits. With their individual profiles, they answer to the specific needs and strengths of their affiliate university. While many institutes have traditionally concentrated on humanities and social sciences, an increasing number of institutes now incorporate theoretical and experimental sciences.(UBIAS HP)
