The Institute for Advanced Studies in Social Sciences and Humanities (IAS) was opened on the 30th of December, 2020.
Its goal is to foster international research collaboration between AMU and its international partners in the fields of social sciences and humanities.
It operates as a research center funded by IDUB – „Research University – Excellence Initiative”.
Its initial budget is 10 million PLN (2.5 million EUR).
IAS will intensively seek additional external funding and will host internally- and externally-funded national and international research projects and guest professors. All public-private and public-public collaborations and partnerships are possible.
The idea is to support and conduct the cutting-edge research in social sciences and humanities through a wide array of bottom-up and top-down initiatives, increasing the international visibility of AMU research.
Professor Marek Kwiek was nominated as its director for 2020-2024.
Its website will be: www.ias.amu.edu.pl (soon).
