The EURIAS Fellowship Programme is an initiative of NetIAS (Network of European Institutes for Advanced Study). The Network brings together 22 Institutes for Advanced Study across Europe. It was created in 2004 to stimulate a dialogue on IAS practices and possible forms of cooperation. NetIAS members share the objective of creating international and multidisciplinary learning communities. This openness and the freedom the fellows enjoy for their researches serve to promote scientific and intellectual exchanges. The fellows are released from their usual teaching and research obligations and pursue their project in a privileged environment, that stimulates reflexion and innovation.  IAS tend to break from the intellectual routines, thus fostering the emergence of new perspectives, approaches and paradigms.


While sharing a common vision concerning the freedom of research, and representing an alternative to the national institutions of higher education and research, the IAS offer a considerable diversity in terms of fellowship conditions: individual or collective fellowships; invitations or open calls for applications; one academic year residencies or shorter periods. Furthermore, their scientific policies are characterized by different thematic or geographical orientations, a diverse openness to natural and hard sciences, or a special commitment to promoting early career researchers.


Over the 2010-2019 period, 300 high-level internation researcher were attracted to the European Research Area thanks to the programme.




EURIAS was coordinated by the RFIEA Foundation (Network of French Institutes for Advanced Study), a foundation for scientific cooperation.


The Programme Advisory Board is composed of three internationally recognized administrators with  extensive national, European and international experience with panels.


This project was initiated by the NetIAS with the support of the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (COFUND Programme, Marie Sklodowska Curie Action, grant agreements no 246561 and 609400).
