Collegium Basilea

(Institute of Advanced Study)

Purpose and Commitment

The aim of the Collegium Basilea is to promote disinterested, independent scientific enquiry, and to make the results available to society. Its mission is to encourage and enable scientists to pursue work which, because of its fundamental, transdisciplinary, innovative or speculative nature, would be difficult to pursue elsewhere.
