Center for Advanced Study
The Centre for Advanced Study (CAS Oslo), Norway’s only institute for excellence in interdisciplinary fundamental research, is now accepting project proposals for the 2020/21 academic year. Deadline: 15 January 2018.
CAS Oslo’s primary objective is to strengthen fundamental research by providing outstanding scholars with the opportunity to collaborate on projects across disciplinary and national boundaries.
Each year, CAS Oslo hosts three interdisciplinary research groups working within the fields of the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The groups comprise leading academics from around the world and are led by eminent scholars affiliated with CAS Oslo’s partner institutions in Norway.
Group leaders assemble their research groups from among national and international colleagues. Each group receives a NOK 3.5 million grant, and scholars affiliated with CAS Oslo’s partner institutions are granted sabbatical leave during their residency.
CAS Oslo offers a unique research infrastructure and service platform, including apartments for visiting scholars, event support, IT and library services, and more.
