About the Pufendorf IAS
The Pufendorf IAS (Pufendorfinstitutet) is an interdisciplinary institute at Lund University. The institute was inaugurated in 2009 and is a place where researchers from all faculties at Lund University – from science and medicine to the humanities and arts – are invited to work together. The aim is to be a creative forum, an incubator for new ideas and a springboard for new research initiatives.
The Pufendorf IAS is a place where promising ideas for research are supported at a time when they have just begun to unfold. Researchers of different disciplinary backgrounds are given the opportunity to work together on scientific and societal challenges. In order to find answers to complicated problems, we stimulate boundary-crossing collaboration and encourage early-stage research ideas, which we believe have the potential to open up new research frontiers. This is why we support collaborative, interdisciplinary groups with members who endeavour to learn from each other.
