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

As of February 2022, the situation regarding Covid-19 in the Netherlands seems stable and the Netherlands has opened up. NIAS' doors are therefore open to fellows, staff and visitors.

Current Situation

The NIAS Office is open. There are no restrictions to group size or distancing. Gatherings and events are allowed without any measures; academic and social activities have resumed.

Most of our seminars, workshops and events take place hybrid: both onsite and online.

For the latest national measures (including visiting the Netherlands from abroad), please see here.

Importance of Science

Scholarly reflection and looking back is important. See what our fellows had to say about the pandemic at its start in Food for Thought.

Contact NIAS

Staff members work both from the office and from home. They can be reached by email or phone. The Staff Directory can be found here.

NIAS in Academic Year 2021/22

NIAS is adapting to a new normal and can switch between different situations, outlined in these four scenarios. All scenarios are in line with the government’s policies and the guidelines of National Health Institute RIVM.

In every scenario, the fellowships continue, stipends and replacement subsidies will be paid, and accommodation will be available for fellows from abroad.
