Distinguished Lorentz Fellowship
The development of interdisciplinary research and the exchange of ideas between the Social Sciences and/or the Humanities and the Natural or Technological Sciences, which have increasingly grown apart, deserve special attention. Many believe that it is at the interface between these particular disciplines that the most exciting advances are to be expected. The significance of research in the technical, life and physical sciences and its impact on society needs sustained attention. The NIAS-Lorentz Program aims to address this issue providing fellowships and workshops where top-researchers from a variety of disciplines and countries can work intensively together to address socially relevant research questions. The Distinguished Lorentz Fellowship is part of the NIAS-Lorentz Program.
About the NIAS-Lorentz Program
NIAS provides on-campus facilities for an international group of more than fifty research fellows per year who engage in advanced research in the humanities and social sciences. The Lorentz Center organizes weekly international workshops in the fields of science and technology, providing full operational support to the scientific organizers.
The NIAS-Lorentz Center Program promotes cutting-edge interdisciplinary research that brings together perspectives from the scientific backgrounds of both institutes. Pivotal to this NIAS-Lorentz Center collaboration is the understanding that important and exciting advances are to be expected in research at the interface of the humanities and social sciences on the one hand and science and technology on the other. The NIAS-Lorentz Center program is supported by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Science (KNAW) and the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).
