The Pufendorf IAS stimulates interdisciplinary research within Lund University. The Institute supports researchers working together across disciplinary borders to develop new areas of research. Admitted groups work in so-called Themes or Advanced Study Groups (ASG).

Researchers at Lund University are now invited to apply for Themes and Advanced Study Groups starting in 2023.

Theme must be innovative in nature and revolve around a research issue which best can be solved through knowledge from several disciplines in collaboration.  Focus should be on paving the way for future research opportunities.
The call for applications to Themes starting in September 2023, is now open. 
Deadline is December 14 2022.

Call for Themes, starting in September 2023

 An Advanced Study Group (ASG) gathers researchers from different disciplines around a shared research issue. An ASG provides an opportunity to exchange ideas and perspectives on a research issue that is still at a very early stage of development.

Advanced Study Groups are admitted twice a year through an open call. The application deadline for Advanced Study Groups is 10 November 2022 and 10 May 2023.
