About the organisation
The National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS) was conceived and founded in 1988 by the late Mr. J. R. D. Tata, who sought to create an institution to conduct advanced multidisciplinary research (https://www.nias.res.in) located in the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) campus in Bengaluru. The Institute serves as a forum to bring together individuals from diverse intellectual backgrounds.
The Institute is unique in its integrated approach to the study of intersections between science and technology, philosophy, social issues, and leadership.
NIAS has an active program of public lectures, regional, national, and international conferences, symposia, and seminars organized independently or jointly with other institutions that focus on topical areas of research and public concern.
