CAS projects during the pandemic

A new year, another semester affected by the pandemic. Despite the strict disease control measures, our researchers are in good spirit and are doing their best to get the most out of their stay at CAS. As the pandemic caused the Centre to shut down during the spring semester of 2020, CAS has extended the timeframe for the 2019/2020 projects. That is why there are currently six active CAS projects. The 2020/2021 projects are based at the Centre. We are optimistic that the spring semester will bring fruitful collaborations and results, yet in a different manner than before the Corona outbreak.
