Every year, once BrIAS is fully operational, a maximum of 20 ‘BrIASfellows’, top personalities in their respective fields, will be selected and temporarily move to Brussels for periods up to 10 months. Junior fellows may be selected for shorter stays. The applicants will be invited to specify how their contribution will fit into the general theme of the year, why they have chosen Brussels and which synergies they would like to develop with the local research teams.
Each fellow will be invited to present his/her work at seminar sessions, followed by a debate with all the attendees.
Presence of the fellows at BrIAS will promote critical discussions, collaborations and community cohesion.
