The European Institutes for Advanced Study (EURIAS) Fellowship Programme (2010-2019) was an international researcher mobility program offering 10-month residencies in the participating European Institutes for Advanced Studies, one of which was the IWM in Vienna.
The EURIAS Fellowships created multi-disciplinary learning communities and open intellectual spaces where Fellows—released from their teaching and academic commitments—were able to conduct bottom-up research with the greatest possible freedom and the support of the IWM. For one academic year EURIAS Fellows at the IWM could stray from the customary paths of their disciplines and nurture interdisciplinary collaborations to be developed. The daily encounters among the fellows at the IWM, who represent a wide range of disciplines, further widened their intellectual and professional horizons. This one-year rejuvenating professional experience gave the Fellows a fresh perspective on their research, generating long-term impact on their career and research back in their home institution.
EURIAS Fellowships were offered to both promising young scholars as well as leading senior researchers from across the globe, mainly in the fields of the humanities and social sciences but occasionally also to scholars in life and exact sciences whose projects interfaced with humanities and social sciences. From 2014 to 2019 the Programme was funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme.
In cooperation with the European Institutes for Advanced Study (EURIAS).
