The Nordic Institutes of Advanced Study have formed the network NordIAS with the aim of increasing collaborations among the institutes and affiliated fellows and staff of the Nordic IAS'es. The NordIAS Visiting Fellowship programme is intended to enhance the academic dialogue and network both for the fellows participating and for the institutes at large.
The NordIAS Visiting Fellowship programme is relevant for you if you see an added academic value both for you as a fellow and for the receiving institute in carrying out a visiting fellowship for 1-3 weeks as part of your existing fellowship. Before you apply, you are encouraged to seek out potential collaborators and/ or activities of relevance at the receiving institute.
All fellows at all the eight institutes are welcome to apply for a visiting fellowship at one of the other institutes. To apply you must have an active fellowship at the home institute at the time of the desired visit.
The visiting fellowship can be of 1 to 3 weeks. The timeframe of the visits must take place in the period between February 15, 2024 and June 30, 2024.
The receiving institute will provide an office space for the duration of the visit and will include the visiting fellow in all relevant academic and social activities during the time of the visit.
The fellow’s home institute will cover travel costs and accommodation for the duration of the visit. It is the visiting fellow’s responsibility to find adequate housing and make arrangements with their home institute of the reimbursement/ funding of the costs. The duration of the visit and type of accommodation must be cleared with your home institute.
It is expected that the visiting fellow participates actively in the activities at the receiving institute, either by giving a seminar, presentation or any other academic activity coordinated with the receiving institute.
After each visit, the visiting fellow must submit a short feedback paper regarding the outcome of the visit to both the receiving and the home institute.
Applications are assessed in two steps:
If one fellow has applied to more than one institute, and is accepted at more than one institute, it is up to individual negotiation between the fellow and the home institute to decide if more than one visit can be granted.
As an 'Institute for Advanced Study,' AIAS brings researchers together across disciplines, seniority and nationality. AIAS offers fellowships for excellent researchers from all academic disciplines to pursue cutting-edge research projects for the benefit of society and humankind in optimal research conditions.
The daily encounter with colleagues from diverse research disciplines at AIAS provides fellows with fresh and different insights, methods and perspectives on their own research, leading to new and unexpected research questions and ideas.
My AIAS fellowship has enabled me to expand my research program in a variety of interesting new directions, through collaboration and dialogue with the rich interdisciplinary community of AIAS Fellows and Associates.
