During the conference ‘UBIAS into Impact: Networking our academics meet global challenges", which was held in late June at the University of Birmingham, the Max Weber Center for Advanced Cultural and Social Studies of the University of Erfurt had been admitted as member of UBIAS by the Director's Conference. The UBIAS network (University based Institute for Advanced Study) was founded in 2010 and represents more than 32 Institutes for Advanced Study in the world. All Institutes for Advanced Study gathered in this network are connected to a university and contribute to the academic culture and interdisciplinary networking of their respective university. They do this by Fellowship programs at different levels of the academic career, so they contribute to interdisciplinary, intergenerational and international networking of the respective universities. The inclusion of the Max Weber Center by UBIAS is an international recognition of the quality of Erfurt’s Fellowship programs and opens up numerous contacts and opportunities for cooperation with similar institutions around the world.
UBIAS organizes annual international conferences that serve and help implement quality standards in the international context of the cross-linking of the respective institutions.
‘We are proud of having become member of the UBIAS network and see this as a recognition and incentive for further work of the Max Weber Center, particularly with regard to the internationalization of the University of Erfurt’, says Professor Dr. Hartmut Rosa, director of Max Weber Center of the University of Erfurt.
