Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study STIAS
Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study STIAS in South Africa is an independent but with Stellenbosch University closely allied research institute at which eminent scientists are invited to stay 1-3 months or more.
The Institute has its own relatively new building entirely funded by the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation (MMW). It can accommodate 20 researchers simultaneously. Each one gets an office of his or her own. Housing is arranged within walking distance. Once a week a joint seminar is organized. Visitors are expected to attend this and the common lunch every day, otherwise they dispose completely their time - the idea is to offer uninterrupted time to work on your own research in a stimulating environment.
