Application Process Begins
The yearly application process starts. Researchers at any of CAS' partner institutions can apply as a group leader and send in reserach project proposals.
The initial application must include a brief project proposal and a short version of the application's CV. The deadline is set to January.
Evaluation and Selection
The CAS Board decides which project proposals will continue to the second round of the application process.
The second application must include: a complete description of the project; a complete CV; a letter of intent and a brief CV of four core members. The deadline is set to April.
International Peer Review
Three referees per project proposal evaluate the applications in an international peer review.
Based on the thorough evaluation, the CAS Board selects three group projects, one from each CAS category, to send a year at CAS.
