The Hebrew University of Jerusalem - Institute of Advanced Studies

The Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) of Jerusalem is a national science institution devoted to academic research. It is a self-governing body, both in its administrative function as well as its academic pursuits. It is located at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, at the Edmond J. Safra campus at Givat Ram, where the national library of the State of Israel is located as well.

The Institute was founded in 1975 to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment, championing outstanding scholarly research in a wide range of disciplines. It brings together scholars from around the world to engage in collaborative research projects for periods of six to twelve months. The Institute is similar in concept to several existing Institutes of Advanced Study, yet also unique in its sponsoring unrestricted academic research and hosting collaborative teams throughout the more than thirty years since its establishment.
