Welcome to brias
The newly founded Brussels Institute for Advanced Studies (BrIAS), co-founded by the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), expands upon the mission of other IASes as an incubator of ideas and research by focusing on current and urgent themes with a great societal impact.
Located in the heart of Brussels, it attracts the very best scientists, artists or designers, coming from various fields or countries and without any philosophical restrictions. It provides the opportunity to work in an atmosphere of complete freedom, collaboration, mutual emulation and cross-fertilisation. BrIAS facilitates collaborations with countries facing critical challenges pertaining to sustainability.
