AIAS host of the 2019 NetIAS and EURIAS Annual meetings

This week, AIAS is welcoming the European Network for Institutes for Advanced Study (NetIAS) and the Annual Directors' Business Meeting and EURIAS Fellows Meeting. IAS directors and representatives and fellows from 25 European Institutes will participate.

As an active member of the European Network for Institutes for Advanced Study (NetIAS), AIAS is hosting and co-organizing this year’s 2019 NetIAS Annual Directors' Business Meeting and Annual Meeting for EURIAS Fellows. The meetings will run from 3-6 April and include representatives of the 23 NetIAS member institutes, potential new member institutes and the EURIAS Fellows. Some 85 scholars, directors and staff members will participate.

“Hosting this event is really a milestone in the history of AIAS”, says AIAS Director Morten Kyndrup. “It gives us the opportunity to show and to present Aarhus University and AIAS to representatives and scholars from all the best sister institutes in Europe, from Berlin to Cambridge, from Uppsala to Paris. We are really looking forward to this, as we have been working hard on this project for a long time”.

AIAS Director and Professor Morten Kyndrup and the AIAS staff is co-organizing the meeting together with Nadia Al-Bagdadi, NetIAS Chairman and Director of IAS CEU, Budapest; and Olivier Bouin, NetIAS general secretary and Director of the foundation Réseau français des instituts d’études avancées, Paris. The programme will have both a business meeting and a conference where EURIAS Fellows will present their research through themed panel sessions and science slam as well as a social programme that will allow for informal networking across institutions, academic areas, seniority and culture.
