Institute for Advanced Studies ‒ IHS

Vienna, Austria

The Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS) was founded as a private non-profit organization by Paul F. Lazarsfeld and Oskar Morgenstern with support from the Ford Foundation, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, and the City of Vienna, in order to provide an international and interdisciplinary meeting place for theoretical and empirical researchers in economics and the social sciences. Austria's first postgraduate research and education institution, the IHS trains highly qualified young scientists and managers. Young graduates can obtain further qualifications in economics and the social sciences from internationally renowned visiting professors. Those working at the Institute are given the opportunity to work in a broad and varied field and also to take part in projects outside their own areas of study.
