CAS partners with Norwegian universities and university colleges to strengthen fundamental research. The partnerships, which last for five years and may be renewed, are structured to benefit CAS, the institutions, and the scholars themselves. 

  • Scholars employed in permanent research positions at CAS' partner institutions are granted sabbatical leave during their residency
  • Partner institutions pay scholars' salaries during their stay, reducing the financial strain on CAS and ensuring the best scholars apply
  • Partner institutions earn publication points for research published during or after a stay at CAS, potentially increasing their share of the performance-based funding allocated by the Norwegian government

Contact committees

Each partner institution elects members to a contact committee. The committees assist the institutions and CAS with the process of selecting group leaders.
