UBIAS places great emphasis on supporting outstanding young researchers. They will be the intellectual leaders of tomorrow. The UBIAS-programme Intercontinental Academia is an exciting opportunity for young researchers from all over the world to engage with topics of fundamental relevance. Each Intercontinental Academia (ICA) promotes the scientific exchange between generations, disciplines, cultures and continents, investing particularly in young scientists aged between 30 and 40 years from different areas of knowledge to engage in an interdisciplinary collaborative study. Each ICA stands under the guidance of three senior scientists - of regional and international recognition - which will coordinate the activities. Two ICAs have been realized: ICA 1 on the topic of “Time” was realized by UBIAS-member institutes IAR Nagoya and IAE São Paulo. UBIAS-institutes ZIF Bielefeld and IIAS Jerusalem are responsible for ICA 2 on the topic of “Human dignity”. For further information on these programmes, please refer to the specific web-sites.
