Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies

Organisational unit: Research centre / Specialised centre


The Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies is an interdisciplinary institute with the aim to stimulate collaboration between researchers from different disciplines within Lund University. In "Themes" and "Advanced Study Groups", researchers from all faculties of the university are given the opportunity to jointly explore scientific issues.


The Pufendorf IAS aims to be an incubator for new ideas and research issues. Once a year, the institute makes a call for interdisciplinary groups to propose topics that have the potential to creatively and innovatively advance research and science. Those who are granted are invited to work at the institute in "Themes" or in "Advanced Study Groups (ASGs)" during an autumn- and a spring semester.
