WHAT IS IT
IAS Litoral is an interdisciplinary research institute that selects and receives foreign researchers and research teams and of the UNL itself. Our concern is to work with researchers from different continents, cultures, languages and religions in all areas of knowledge and the arts.
IAS Litoral is an University Based Institute for advanced studies that has a vocation of openness to the community from Santa Fe which is reflected in its interest in global problems, with a strong local impact, its attention to the improvement of conditions of local life and for contributing to medium and long-term reflexion at a local and regional level.
The Institute for Advanced Studies of Litoral (IAS Litoral) was created to promote interdisciplinary dialogue on major contemporary problems, through a strong commitment to the internationalization of research, by the creation of research networks and the exchange of researchers from different geographies and cultures.
Because of the openness to the community from Santa Fe, the institute has an Economic and Social Council, thus allows us to know precisely which the local problems are, and the institute has a strong commitment to solve them. As a consequence, research policy and scientific and artistic activities towards local and regional problems are carried out; and a permanent dialogue with social actors, forces and movements of the city and the region.
The IAS is an institutional organization that seeks to offer fellows researchers an ideal environment for research which favors creativity, marked by freedom, tranquility and absence of other obligations associated with the teaching and research activity, outside the development of his research project in IAS Litoral. It is created with the firm will to build a multicultural, intellectual and cosmopolitan community, of academic excellence, which favors dialogue, conversation and exchange with open boundaries.
The selection of fellows takes place around annual main themes established by IAS Litoral, which will be oriented to local needs and be highly responsible with the local and regional agenda and it has to be linked to global problems and issues.
