In December 2013, a three-year agreement was signed to implement the cooperation between the Swiss federal Government (State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation - SERI) and the Nantes Institute for Advanced Study.
SERI encourages researchers to go beyond self-centered approaches and aims at developing their creativity. The support it provides to IAS-Nantes intends to provide outstanding scholars with the possibility to develop international interdisciplinary networks and to discuss with scientific elites abroad. This partnership relies as well on a close collaboration with Fribourg University, with which IAS-Nantes will develop research projects on societies’ institutional framework (law, language, religion), on the concept of humanities and its role in the scientific landscape, and on interdisciplinary research in Social Sciences and Humanities.
