The Institute for Advanced Study at CEU (CEU-IAS) brings outstanding scholars to Budapest from around the world for up to one academic year of research. Following the tradition of Collegium Budapest and similar academic institutions around the world, IAS invites senior and junior fellows to pursue their diverse disciplinary interests in an environment conducive to focused scholarship. CEU-IAS provides a stimulating environment in which the fellows can devote themselves to their research and share their work with peers through weekly seminars and other community programs. Fellows have access to all CEU facilities, including seminar and conference space, computer services, and library resources. They also benefit from CEU’s vibrant international character, its strong ties in Hungary, and its location in culturally rich Budapest. CEU-IAS facilitates the fellows’ engagement with the Hungarian scholarly community by encouraging collaborative projects, organizing joint public lectures, establishing student mentorship programs, and related activities. The Institute’s mission includes stimulating interdisciplinary scholarship and promoting academic research and cooperation worldwide.
