Social Sciences

The Lorentz Center program in Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) is part of the NIAS-Lorentz collaboration and is overseen by the NIAS-Lorentz Advisory Board. 

This board is responsible for the evaluation of all workshop proposals in the entire domain of social sciences and humanities.

The board members act as ambassadors to increase the visibility of the SSH workshop program.


This board also supervises the activities of the NIAS-Lorentz Program which focuses on initiatives that bring together the humanities and/or social sciences on the one hand and the natural and/or technological sciences on the other.
