CAS seeks to enhance basic research in Norway. This would be impossible to achieve without collaboration with the universities and university colleges in the country.

CAS has signed 5-year contracts with a number of Norwegian institutions that ensure fruitful collaboration. The contracts are expected to be prolonged.

Extraordinary sabbatical

A researcher holding a permanent scientific position at one of our partner institutions get an extraordinary sabbatical if admitted as group leader or participant at CAS.

This collaboration is vital in order to encourage the best researchers to apply and is economically fruitful for the Centre since the researchers’ salaries come from their home institutions during their stay.

Publication points awarded the home institutions

Former CAS-fellows often describe their stay at CAS as the best and most productive year of their career.

The collaboration between the home institution and CAS implies that the publication points are awarded the researcher’s home institutions.

Contact committees

Each participating institution elects members to a contact committee. Its mandate is to help the institutions and CAS with the process of selecting group leaders.
