European NetIAS Lecture Series: Borders

May 28, 2020

In order to respond proactively to the current situation and to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic and in order to showcase the quality and diversity of the research conducted in its member institutes, ​the Network opens its doors to all interested in the research conducted at our Institutes and interested in timely discussions. The 25 Institutes from 17 European countries participating in the Network operate on the basis of a Europe-wide geographical distribution on common principles of freedom of research and knowledge sharing.

The series of joint weekly lectures --The European NetIAS Lectures--starting on June 4th, 2020, will feature renowned scholars from a variety of disciplines, approaches, and thematic interests.
