5 Year Anniversary

Five years have passed since the opening of the Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies. It has been years of challenges and constant development, and this needs a proper celebration. Join AU colleagues, AIAS fellows (current and former), AIAS associates, board members and staff for an afternoon of talks, refreshments and music. Participation is by email invitation only. The event is free of charge, but please sign up here by 14 June 2018. 

The annual AIAS Summer Gathering will follow the Anniversary Celebration. You are all kindly invited, but if you would like to join, please sign up and pay the fee of DKK 175,- by 14 June via the separate 'Summer Gathering' registration link.
