CAS projects 2016/2017
In the autumn 2013 the Centre for Advanced Study requested proposals for projects and group leaders for the academic year 2016/2017. From among the proposals, the Board will select a number of candidates who will be invited to submit more detailed descriptions of their projects for further evaluation.
