Institute for Advanced Study

About us

Since its launch in 2005, the Technical University of Munich’s Institute for Advanced Study (TUM-IAS) has played a trailblazing role during a period of sweeping changes for academics in Germany and Europe. With the motto “risking creativity,” the IAS serves as a flagship institute for top-level international research at TUM, and has helped to drive the university’s development into one of Germany’s top academic institutions under the auspices of its strategy, “TUM. The Entrepreneurial University”. The IAS Fellowship Program offers excellent guest scientists from academia and industry, as well as early-career scientists the chance to conduct top-level, interdisciplinary research at TUM.
