The NIAS-Lorentz Program promotes cutting-edge interdisciplinary research that brings together perspectives from the Humanities and/or Social Sciences on the one hand and the Natural Sciences and/or Technological Sciences on the other. It is a collaboration with the Lorentz Center in Leiden: an international centre that coordinates and hosts workshops in the sciences.
The NIAS-Lorentz Program finances three activities per academic year:
Pivotal to the NIAS-Lorentz program is the understanding that important and exciting advances are to be expected in research at the interface of the Humanities and/or Social Sciences on the one hand and the Natural Sciences and/or Technological Sciences on the other. Topics of societal importance that require extensive collaboration across traditional scientific boundaries in order to progress are encouraged.
Scholars who are interested in the NIAS-Lorentz Program can find detailed information on the NIAS-Lorentz website see:
The Lorentz Center is an international centre that coordinates and hosts workshops in the sciences, based on the philosophy that science thrives on interaction between creative researchers. Lorentz Center workshops focus on new collaborations and interactions between scientists from different countries and fields, and with varying seniority.
In 2005, the directors of NIAS and the Lorentz Center took the initiative to set up interdisciplinary fellowships at NIAS and workshops at the Lorentz Center. An interdisciplinary advisory board was installed and the first individual Lorentz Fellows arrived at NIAS in 2006. In the following years, the Distinguished Lorentz Fellowship (DLF) was introduced and then, in 2011, the individual Lorentz fellowships were replaced by the Theme-group Fellowships (NLTG) as a way to encourage researchers from various disciplines to combine forces. The number of interdisciplinary workshops at the Lorentz Center has increased and the NIAS-Lorentz Program has been prolonged until at least 2016.
