This Artist-in-Residence Programme awards fellowships to artists in which they spend five months at the NIAS working on a project that contributes to cross-fertilisation between the arts and science. The purpose of the residency is to study the theoretical aspects of a subject in-depth. The programme was established jointly by the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS-KNAW) and the Society of Arts.
