Our vision on education

Room for bridge-builders

The IIS aims to educate students who are able to make connections between ostensibly unrelated research areas and who can fall back on a broad range of knowledge in order to develop new solutions to complex issues. The IIS creates an environment where students learn to adopt an open attitude, develop creativity and are given room to discover their talents.

Solving complex issues

Interdisciplinary education builds on disciplinary knowledge – it offers a new layer to the existing, defined fields of study. In theory, interdisciplinary education ensures that students appreciate the added value of different disciplines and learn how insights from different fields of study can contribute to solving complex issues, both in academia and society.
