Kaleidoscopic Perspectives

“Being at a NIAS Seminar and discussing each other’s work is like looking into a kaleidoscope: with every participant, coming from her of his own background, the image shifts and reconfigurates in new and unexpected ways.”

Margaretha Wewerinke-Singh, Fellow 2020/21

NIAS and Covid-19

In response to rising infections in Amsterdam and the Netherlands, NIAS has moved predominantly online. Following the loosening of national measures on 28 May 2021, the NIAS Office Building is open for a limited number of fellows and staff. All our seminars, workshops and events will still take place online. Here, you will find the latest NIAS regulations around Covid-19.

Current Situation

The NIAS Office is open from Monday to Friday, 8.30 – 20.00 for fellows and staff. Please note that visitors are not allowed at this phase.

Importance of Science

Scholarly reflection is more important than ever before. See what our fellows have to say about it in Food for Thought.

Staff members can be reached by email or phone. The Staff Directory can be found here.

NIAS in Academic Year 2020/21

NIAS has adapted and moved online. In line with the government’s policies and the guidelines of National Health Institute RIVM, NIAS is adapting to a new normal, which are outlined in these four scenarios.

We started the academic year in hybrid form, with part of the fellows working from home, and the largest part of the fellows in Amsterdam and in the office. At this moment, it is not yet possible to predict which scenario will apply in February 2021. But in every scenario, the fellowships continue, stipends and replacement subsidies will be paid, and accommodation will be available for fellows from abroad.


We will do our best to inform you of recent corona-related developments and to keep the information on this website as accurate as possible. We appreciate your understanding and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact NIAS.
