UBIAS
UBIAS-with-logo_0.jpg

The Institutes of Advanced Studies at University of Birmingham and Nanyang Technological University Singapore are part of a network of IAS's across the world - UBIAS. One of the most successful initiatives developed between the members of this group is the Intercontinental Academia (ICA) where scientific exchange between generations, disciplines, cultures and continents takes place around a topic or theme.

The proposal to create the Intercontinental Academia was accepted at the meeting of the Steering Committee of UBIAS held in March 2012 at the Institute for Advanced Study Jawaharlal Nehru, in New Delhi, India. The initial idea was of the then director of the IAS Israel, Eliezer Rabinovici. The IEA-USP and the IAR (Institute for Advanced Research) of the Nagoya University felt motivated by the insight of the Israeli scientist and decided to be behind the pilot project for this initiative, which operated as a joint venture.
