LIAS joins UBIAS, the global network connecting more than 40 university-based institutes for advanced study

LIAS has been officially accepted as a member of UBIAS, the University-Based Institutes for Advanced Study, a worldwide network facilitating exchange between more than 40 renowned institutes. The biennial conference, held in Nagoya, Japan featured rich discussions and the exchange of valuable insights and best practices. The event provided an engaging and educational platform to showcase how each institution contributes to enhancing international and interdisciplinary scientific dialogue. By joining UBIAS, we are both expanding our global network and reinforcing our commitment to participate in societal debate.


A healthy public debate about important societal challenges requires a common and scientifically sound basis.
