    ‘It is very rare to have the opportunity to concentrate so much on one project with a group of people as what CAS allows. For us, I think it would be safe to say that the fruits of CAS are materialising along two lines – the books we produced there, and the spinoffs that only now are starting to pop up.’ Hans Jakob Orning, professor of history at UiO and a former CAS project leader, said when thinking back at his year at the centre.
