Norway's premier institute of excellence in interdisciplinary fundamental research.
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.
Fresh, multidisciplinary perspectives are needed to understand the connections between culture and emotional distress, Professor Vigdis Broch-Due, scientific director of CAS Oslo, and her colleague Professor Bjørn Enge Bertelsen argue in a new book.
The Centre for Advanced Study (CAS Oslo) is proud to announce the three research projects selected for the 2019/20 academic year.
CAS Oslo fellows involved in the research project 'The Nordic "Civil Wars" in the High Middle Ages in a Comparative Perspective' debate whether some civil wars can have positive consequences -- and whether they should even be called civil wars.
Extreme chemistry may sound exciting to work with, but for most of us it can be very hard to grasp what researchers in such fields are actually working on. This is especially true if they are looking into the composition and properties of elements that do not exist on Earth.
Chemistry normally deals with the predictable behaviour of matter – how atoms form molecules, and how the molecules react when introduced to one another. But how do those same molecules behave in unpredictable conditions? Trygve Ulf Helgaker, professor of theoretical chemistry at the University of Oslo, is aiming to find out.
Trygve Ulf Helgaker, professor of theoretical chemistry at the University of Oslo, explains the science of quantum leaps in this CAS Oslo lunch seminar.
As part of Forskningsdagene 2017, CAS Oslo invited six current and former research fellows to give a 12-minute talk about science and values. In his talk, biologist Dag O. Hessen presents a range of ways to look at the value of nature.
In an appearance on the NRK show Ekko, Hans Jacob Orning, professor of history at the University of Oslo and CAS Oslo research group leader, discusses whether historians have traditionally overlooked stories about women in the Middle Ages.
