After the University of Freiburg had been chosen as one of nine Universities of Excellence, FRIAS officially took up operations on April 1, 2008. It aims to promote high-level research, develop interdisciplinary research fields, and assist young researchers in their development. FRIAS is loosely modeled after other similar institutions, such as the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, whose director Prof. Dr. Peter Goddard, in fact, held the ignaugural address at the official presentation of FRIAS in May, 2008 at the University of Freiburg.

As a haven and center for academic research, FRIAS wishes to promote new synergies among its fellows and give new impulses to the University of Freiburg.
The Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies currently consists of four schools:
