The power of ideas

The purpose of the Institute for Advanced Studies is to enhance research and intellectual life at the University of Bristol by funding workshops and fellowships in pursuit of new ideas; by staging distinguished lectures and lively debates; and by facilitating interaction between Bristol academics and outstanding scholars from elsewhere. The IAS encompasses all disciplines within the University, promotes creative interdisciplinarity, and seeks to extend the public reach of the University through dissemination activities and external collaborations.

As a department we have benefited hugely from the existing schemes and we have seen some truly world-class academics spend time in Bristol
