European NetIAS Lecture Series on ‘Borders’

The Network of European Institutes for Advanced Study (NetIAS) initiates new lecture series on the topic of ‘Borders’. As an active member of NetIAS, AIAS contributes to the lecture series.

To respond proactively to the current situation and restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, NetIAS partner institutions have launched a series of weekly joint online lectures entitled “European NetIAS Lecture Series” starting this week, on 4 June at 4.00pm.

The 25 member Institutes from 17 countries participating in NetIAS operate on the basis of a Europe-wide geographical distribution on common principles of freedom of research and knowledge sharing. The lectures welcome all interested in the research and timely topics discussed during the 1-hour talks, featuring renowned scholars from a variety of disciplines, approaches and thematic interests, all under the overarching topic of “Borders”.

Lectures from the IAS of Paris, Helsinki, Aarhus, Delmenhorst, Budapest and Konstanz will fill in the weekly summer programme, running until 16 July. AIAS has contributed with a talk by AIAS Fellow Lisa Wu on "Opening the borders of symptom management: Investigating circadian rhythms and light exposure in cancer patients" on 25 June 2020.

This first series of European lectures is organized by the Institute of Advanced Studies of the University of Bologna in Italy.
