About Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies (AIAS)

Curiosity-driven and independent research for excellent scholars worldwide and across all research disciplines is the hallmark of the Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies (AIAS) as AIAS focuses exclusively on research excellence and training of research talent. The fellowship programme is completely bottom-up and the selection of fellows is carried out on the basis of research proposals from applicants with excellence as the sole selection criterion. The programme offers a multidisciplinary training platform and creates an opportunity for researchers to gain freedom and independence to advance their own ideas. A fellowship at AIAS gives a genuine understanding of the methodologies and approaches of other scientific disciplines at the highest level, thus making cross-disciplinary inspiration and initiatives possible.

At AIAS, international researchers are collaborating and sharing knowledge with AU researchers from their own discipline, and at the same time, they are a part of a multidisciplinary and international environment of excellence at the Institute. This provides the individual fellow with a unique opportunity to focus fully on developing his/her research, while also collaborating with researchers with different research perspectives.
