The Leicester Institute for Advanced Studies

Research opportunities

LIAS engages with local, national and international communities and strategic partners to provide collaborative and interdisciplinary opportunities. We are open to new ideas and methodologies that address real-world challenges through research, and offer varied support for projects to come to fruition. There are currently no thematic priorities.

Three pump-priming schemes and a Fellowship Alumni Network run throughout the academic year (September – July). Awarded projects must have a Leicester-based academic lead and core team, however the involvement of wider academic and/or non-academic partners is welcomed.
