History

History of the Institute

The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS) was initiated by Professor E.M. Uhlenbeck with the aim of fostering advanced research in the humanities and social sciences and stimulating interdisciplinary scholarly co-operation in an international setting. The Institute was founded in November 1970 in cooperation with the universities of the Netherlands following approval by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. NIAS became an institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) in 1988. In 2016, the institute moved to the St. Jorishof in Amsterdam, close to the KNAW and the KNAW Humanities Cluster.
