Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies

The Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) is the University of Freiburg’s international research center. An integral part of the university, the institute unites under its roof the humanities and social sciences, medicine, the natural and life sciences, and engineering. FRIAS offers leading academics (senior fellows) as well as outstanding early-stage researchers (junior fellows) from Freiburg and around the world the opportunity to concentrate exclusively on their (individual or joint) research projects for a certain period of time. In this way, the institute creates a unique space and atmosphere for research within the university. It strengthens worldwide networks and enhances the University of Freiburg’s international visibility with its international Marie S. Curie Fellowship Program as well as research collaborations with the Universities of Strasbourg, Nagoya, and Pennsylvania. Moreover, FRIAS holds special events geared toward non-specialists – particularly students, but also the broader public in the City of Freiburg – to illustrate the great relevance of research projects being conducted at FRIAS for society as a whole.
