Advanced Study Groups

An Advanced Study Group (ASG) can be described as a “mini-Theme” – a group of researchers from different disciplines addressing a common research problem

An ASG provides an opportunity to work on a research problem or idea that is at an early stage. ASGs provide researchers with the opportunity to think in new ways together with others in an interdisciplinary environment.  

How is work conducted in an ASG?

Advanced Study Groups hold meetings at the Pufendorf IAS. They have access to premises and receive funds in order to invite guests, purchase books etc, but are not salaried. 

Who can apply for an ASG?

Researchers at Lund University are welcome to apply for an ASG. Members employed at other universities or who are in some way active as researchers in Sweden or abroad may be included as members. Doctoral students may take part on the condition that supervisor and head of department agree.
