NIAS-Lorentz program


The NIAS-Lorentz Program is part of an exceptional collaboration between the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the humanities and social sciences (NIAS) in Amsterdam and the Lorentz Center.


This program was set up in 2006 to stimulate innovative research that bridges the humanities and/or social sciences with the natural and/or technological sciences. The program consists of NIAS-Lorentz workshops and two fellowship programs: the Distinguished NIAS-Lorentz Fellowship and the NIAS-Lorentz Theme Groups.


The fellowships consist of a few months in residence at NIAS in Amsterdam, as well as a workshop at the Lorentz Center in Leiden.
